'Come Near Me My Child'

'Come near me my child',
the old Ocean whispered to me,
and I fell -swimming greedily-
in its embrace.

'Be my companion my child',
the grandy Mount called out,
and I stumbled -climbing my way-
to get to its caress.

I stood confusedly after,
between the plain and plateu.

'Fly with me',
the Wind whistled to my ears,
then I jumped heading for the sky
and fell into the deepest ravine
-couldn't swim nor climb no more-

Merely cry, pray and die.

Lombok Strait, Indonesia,1998
