The door closes behind me
with a snap.
My footsteps echo strangely
on the street’s pavement.
I feel the urge to go back.
A pale sun is struggling hard
to escape the cloud’s clutches.
The smell of incense covers
the salty scent of the sea.
A treacherous fog hovers over the waters.
The murmuring priest’s voice,
coming from the meager church,
reminds me more of the earth
than of the heaven.
I move on and do not even care
that I go on the road
wearing the carpet slippers.
