Peaceful Morning in the Himalayas

Written by Germain Droogenbroodt

Translated from Dutch by the poet 

Narrated by Bill Wolak

It appears

as if the previous night

has quenched every thirst 

The day comes with light

and voices of birds

strange to the ear 

In the distance

the wavering sound

of a reed flute: 

a morning prayer

for Shiva, for Buddha

or for whatever god. 

So peaceful appears this morning

as if after so many ages

humanity were at peace

finally at rest.
