“Language – the Loop of the World” by Norbert Gora

P30-theloopoftheworld


Language – the loop of the world

World in a cardboard box
knotted by a thread of languages,
crumpled, stifled,
wrapped by a power of communication.

The thread woven with words,
inspired by paraphrases,
the way to discussion
is opened, the dreamed.

Loop of the world
towering over the green globe,
in language sees
the source of the strength.

Język – kokarda świata

Świat w tekturowym pudle
zasupłany nicią języków,
zmięty, stłamszony,
owinięty potęgą komunikacji.

Nić ze słów utkana,
natchniona parafrazami,
droga do dyskusji
jest otwarta, wyśniona.

Kokarda świata
góruje nad zielonym globem,
w języku widzi
źródło swej mocy.
