The meeting of the worlds


‘And man met the beings of the world

in the castle of the earthly mind,

with fear like a parasite rooted all around,

and spoke like a king without a people,

dead before death came.

There they are, the beings of the world.


but in the look, deep down, like lightning,

that question of life was lying wakefully in wait,

in a consciousness which is still asleep,

about the hope of a loving aim

which will sweep away fear and death

with lightning flashes of joy. …’


From the poem ‘The Soul of the Beings – The meeting of the worlds’, by Ioanna Moutsopoulou
