OLD BRIDGE NEW BRIDGE

When I saw Bridges’ Pic
I had them with everything
including myself, the river and land.
These appear as “gurus”
feeling in love
with these pieces of Sky and Earth
wanting loneliness, space, peace
and clarification of our needs
and I began to root in them
for a while.
These are any iron road that we could follow
without preconception:
an entrance and exit into the World¡
I thought of them
as our own personal Buddha:
The one that was going to show us the way
to Live and Pass on Earth
two bridges that only together do they Exist
the Old and the New
as a whole.
Who are we?
Asses trapped in between packsaddles and bridges
to recognize our nature
to clarify all our needs
and the quietness of an afternoon
reviving songs
that fill all senses, all forms, all space, all rivers
all these symbols, all our thoughts:
Old and New
New and Old
Life and Death
Weak and Strong
Happy and Bad
Black and White
Woman and Man.
The Old Bridge and the New Bridge
are in the growth of our wisdom
to recognize our nature
to clarify all our dreams
and the plain truth:
That we come to live and pass
on Earth.
