Jürgen Wagner

Brother Bruno and the Frog

Engrossed in prayer through the night
The Brother heard a croaking right
The bullfrog sang its boisterous song
It has to be feared: all night long

Upset, he called out with all might:
"Hush hush, I'm praying, it's my right!"
The voice was heard, the pond got still
What wonderful silence and holy will!

But suddenly a thought got growth:
"Perhaps God loves the voice of both?"
He overcame, called out: "deploy!
Dear Frog, begin and sing with joy!"

The concert started once again
The whole pond sang, he said: Amen!
No longer disturbed he felt as a king:
In harmony and one with everything

Spiegelungen des Daseins: HImmel und Erde: Hommage an das Leben von Jürgen Wagner



Die Gedichte aus den Jahren 2013-16 erzählen von der ‚Hochzeit‘ von Himmel und Erde. Ob in der kraftgebenden Schärfe des Rettichs oder in der Vitalität der Jahrtausende schon lebenden Eibe, ob in der Weisheit alter Geschichten oder im Wunder der Liebe, ob in spirituellen Erfahrungen oder in den Weiten des Alls: überall begegnen sich Licht und Dunkel, oben und unten. Unsere gewohnte Alltagswelt bekommt etwas von ihrem wahren Glanz wieder, wenn wir uns ein Stück dafür öffnen.
