    THE OTHER LIFE

    By Ada Aharoni

    Sometimes when time stops
    we are arrested
    in the flow of a feeling
    the colour of a word
    the flight of a gesture,
    a standstill
    which signals
    not a death
    but a recollection
    of a life elsewhere lived
    hardly remembered.

    It is as if life
    was lent for a while
    for something that signifies,
    a yearning for a proof
    that we are
    not superfluous
    we exist
    and we mean
    mean intensely.

    Words are but tiny buds
    anxious to grow
    and we let them flow
    in the wind
    that blows them back to us unexpectedly
    mystifying the porous walls of thought
    when what was
    becomes blurred with
    what is
    the other with you
    me with you and the other.
