The Light From The Sky



last night (– or was it the night before?)

I grazed outside under the dark sky

under the cloudy milky way

and billions of stars,

my toes were entangled

with a patch of mossy grass


all of a sudden

a mighty sparkling light

flew directly into my inner world


it had a message

with no words nor sounds

but left me with a feeling

of rich acknowledgment

and love




a german fairy tale collected by the Gebrüder Grimm

as it was passed down to me (retelling it in my translation and abbreviated form)

once upon a time there was a little girl who’s mother and father had died

the little girl was very poor

it had not even a room to live in

nor a bed to sleep in

it only had the dress it wore

and a piece of bread a kind soul had spared

but the little girl war pious and good

she felt that forsaken by all the world

it left to wander out into the fields of the world

trusting only god in its heart

the little girl came across a poor man

who said

please give me something to eat I’m so terribly hungry

the little girl gave him her last piece of bread

and said

with god’s blessings to you

and continued on her path

where she met a whining child

wailing bitterly

I am so cold, I have nothing to wear

so the little girl gave her coat and cap

and was left only with her thin little dress

finally she reached the forest by nightfall


low and behold

an other poor creature appeared and asked for her dress

now it is dark and no one can see me

I might as well give my dress

the little girl said and took off her last

to give away

and as the little girl stood there

with nothing left of her own

all of a sudden

the stars fell from heaven

and they all were pure golden coins

and made out of finest linen

she was fitted with a dress again

the little girl collected all the coins

into the pouch of her dress

and was rich for the rest of her life
