LIGHT

Eldar Akhadov

The light has neither age nor shadow,
There is no “yesterday” or “tomorrow”. Everything is “now”.
Fall on your knees before him, the sacred one,
Look into it without taking your eyes off!

Look at the stars, at the moon, at the sun
And the clear gaze of the past is not sadness,
While he is rushing at speed,
Permeating the distance with immortality…

While the planet wakes up
(And somewhere he falls asleep while walking),
There is nothing around except the light,
Which I will someday enter!
