The Elephant

to Savatie Bastovoi

I saw an elephant swimming
for the first time,
and suddenly
all miracles seemed possible.

I have been away from You
abruptly – most of my lives,
yet the sun kept on shining
in expectation.

I hear these words
in a language I don’t understand,
yet I presume they speak
of the sunset’s sweetness.

The strain finds no asylum
in my shoulders,
while the stillness of the ocean
veils my salmons in abyssal plains.

I saw an elephant swimming
for the first time,
and all miracles seemed possible,
for the Elephant belongs to You.
