You came into my kingdom.
You came to my heaven.
Quiet and unobtrusive,
and yet so big.

Constantly guarding the flame,
when the system of nerves almost caught fire.

In infinite goodness,
with peaceful power.
I snuggled into you,
into the belly scale fur – so soft!

Only rarely did you fly away,
you were moving in the wide empire,
invisibly bringing an egg in the luggage.


Confidently slipping.
Rejoicing in being.

Two companions born of love.
Gifts from the afterlife
and wonders of the earth.
