Upon the ground
Upon the ground a mountain stands,
as eyes look up after a fall,            
 but not from its dark granite hands.
 Upon the ground a mountain stands,
 it is behind in desert lands,            
   and days before it was a wall.
     Upon the ground a mountain stands,
     as eyes look up after a fall.

there isn't the will
again
falling down
not having
anything.



The dog
Outside the dog cries,
he needs something,
but without speech,
he just calls.
He needs something,
an alleviation,
he just calls,
hoping it will come.
An alleviation,
a small thing,
hoping it will come,
he calls.
A small thing,
but without words,
he calls,
hoping there is understanding.
But without words,
                        the man's eyes glimmer,
hoping there is understanding,
outside the dog cries.

~M. Sakran
