during her first steps
she cannot see through her eyes on the wings
thus she cleans her inner lens from magnifying –
with every other step she listens to her soles
and sends her daily trash into the past.
by letting go and sinking into the soil
she loses weight and becomes less important
till she sees behind the gauze of appearances
which she will sensually open towards transparency
into a bigger echelon with all its magnitude
invisible and yet invincible.
