.re creation


They have killed the tree
My gentle friend’s heart is stirred
They have razed the roots
And replaced the space and life of organisms
With energy-efficient lighting and electric cars
The tree must have had a patient relationship
Shared many wisps of thoughts with my dear friend
He who flutters like a little bird

He who stares at you like a bee
His rapid heart beating
As he stares outta the window

Through the boughs and branches and flowers and the whirls in the breeze,

He encounters the 'Egg', a reactor, atop which crows perch

Crows remember faces

Elephants remember kindness

Birds sing stories

Trees write them in their bones

Earth stratifies deeds

Kindness is a tsunami

One of cosmic magnitude

Redistributing the sum total of its waves

Kindness imbues power

Imagination, secrets

Indistinguishable from magic
He stares at his notebook
Rolls a cigarette
Stares at you and says something out of the TUMblue

He purses his lips onto a cushion and inhales a mixture which he holds in with a thought

As the nicotine kicks into his bloodstream

He exhales the smoke

And runs his fingers through his hair
Picks up an instrument
And sings his heart out
And laughs with a glint in his eye
They have killed the tree
But not the earth’s ability
To move a little seed
And convert it to life
With the help of warmth and water, light and air
Life begets life
Light begets light
You need a thought
You need understanding

You need to love to be loved

You need to set love free and choose you

Love is a shy plant,
With powers old and sacred

Entrusted with a single condition

Put it to good use, share freely the fruits of your deed

For then it grows, multiplies and wins over all

Through love and laughter, harmony and knowledge

Extend through tendrils of understanding, trust and amnesty

Extending the elixir to undo the past

And grow larger than before, equal and connected

Look, do you see where the core of this energy-efficiency lies?
