Light over Waters by Angelika Heike Rüdiger

Sunlight is singing

Over opalescent waters

A high and ephemeral tune

Heart-breaking, longing, loving.

I see the salmon jumping

Sheer silver essence of the deep

Both sweet and savoury.

I see healing herbs swaying

The verdant power of the deep,

The sap rising to the sun.

I see white mist rising

The hiding place of rainbows

The birth place of the dew.

I see Your face

Holding the wisdom of all three,

And with me there is heart-break,

And longing and love and light.
