Inge Offermann

This dark, clear Night

Sunset glow

shines through

trees’ shadows,

spreads a pink

silken shawl

over ruffling water

and moves

the golden sticks

of reflected lights.

 

Blurred stars

stray faint glimmer

onto leaves’ ornaments.

One sparkles

over a solitary place,

no moving lights

tonight.

 

Seagulls ceased to cry.

Beaver has dived

into deep coolness,

smoke curls upward,

no wind, but

you can listen

do distinct sounds.

Your eyes reflect

unknown distance.

You’re part

of this dark,
clear night.

Diese dunkle, klare Nacht


Abendrotglut
scheint durch
die Schatten
der Bäume,
breitet einen
rosasilbrigen
Schleier auf
gekräuseltes Wasser
und bewegt
goldene Balken
gespiegelter Lichter.

Blasse Sterne
streuen schwaches Licht
auf Blattmuster.
Einer funkelt über
einem verlassenen Platz,
bewegungslose Lichter
dieser Nacht.

Möwenrufe ersterben,
ein Biber ist in tiefe
Dunkelheit enttaucht.
Rauch kräuselt auf.
Deine Augen spiegeln
unbekannte Ferne.
Du bist ein Teil
dieser dunklen,
klaren Nacht.
