A poem about Škocjan Caves

Jamska pesem

V votlini sem skrita in nočem ven.
Ne zanima me svetloba,
prav briga me, a vidim sence al ljudi.
Jama me je perzervirala in zdaj sem del nje.
Sem človek-jama,
jamski jezik, jamska hrana,
jamski ples v dolgih dvoranah stalaktitov.
Nočem ven, tu sem zdaj doma.
Ne morem vem, zdaj sem ono.
Stopili sva se in prepletli,
nežno, a za zmeraj eno.
Nimam telesa, le še senca
netopirja, ki rabi zavetje,
le odsev vode, ki se je izgubil
v globoki notranjosti
večne teme.

V Škocjanu, 18. septembra 2010
