MOLITEV K SVETEMU FRANČIŠKU

Naj nam bog podari mir
da bodo ptice zemljo podedovale
da bomo dosegli prijateljstvo z živalmi

Naj nam bog podeli mir
s križem iz telesa in kril
da se bomo še po smrti družili z drobcenimi bitji.

Moj sveti Frančišek, ko boš krenil
po poti proti gorovju
naj vse ptičke s planine
priletijo na polje.
Bog tako hoče, da angeli in ptice
odprejo okna na vsaki travici,
da bilke svetijo kot perje mlade zvezde

Naj me prebudi cvrčanje
kot odtekanje vode,
naj me vznemiri cvrčanje
kot prsketanje ognja
v objemu Tvojih kril

Prosim te, naj ptice ne utihnejo
niti zvečer ko zablejajo ovce.
Ne vzdržim skrit v steklu
ne morem prenesti jezika izplaženega na mentalni ogradi.
Prosim te, naj v spominu ostanejo
kolibriji ki kakor živci
trepečejo nad težkimi skrbmi.
Naj v spominu ostane zapisano
kako med množico ljudi
z žerjavico ščitimo mravljo.
Naj ostanejo znane moje šibkosti
kot je skupno prebujanje črva in metulja
Naj se pomnijo moje muke
podobne vetru, ki riga kot osel

Ko sem iskal cesto po kateri si hodil
in volk in jagnje ob tebi,
sem videl ribo neosvojljivo kot ptico,
videl sem osla in oso v istih mukah,
beli oblak ki nosi naše duše v nebo

Je kaj lepšega kot strah pred tigrom,
kot ta zgodba
na katere koncu pajek plete mrežo
s svetlobo metulja
ki se dviguje ob zori

Naj nam Bog podeli mir
naj naša družina ne bo siromašna
niti z insekti
pod katerimi biki sklanjajo svoje težke glave.

Naj nam Bog podeli tak mir
da nam vrabec ne bo dal miru niti za trenutek
nenehno prepevajoč
živ-živ, živ-živ,
dokler izmučeni od samote ne bomo zaslišali pasjega laježa.

Naj ribe zemljo podedujejo,
naj ose zemljo podedujejo,
in mravlje
in cvrčki.
Naj zemljo podedujejo divji konji
in muhe
lahkotno lebdeč nad našimi ranami.
Naj v mojem vrtu
gosposki pevci prevzeti od pričakovanja zore
kikirikajo kot spomin.

Sveti moj Frančišek, Ti si
z vsakim bitjem hodil
le ti si z vsakim bitjem pel.
Ti si videl njihove duše
daljne kot drago kamenje.
Ti poznaš zgodovino oglašanja
v ušesu vsake divje zveri
in domače živali.
Natanko poznaš ime mravlje
ki se vzpenja po starem murvinem deblu
na mojem dvorišču.
In prosim te, povej mi,
ali mu je bolje kot meni?

Ko se bom igral metulja
zagotovo ne bom več videl gosenice
ki me je celo noč čakala
na cedrovi veji
spominov.
Hodim ob konjih
ki se oddaljujejo kot sence
gledam oslepela njihova kopita
se obračajo k prahu.
Med pogovorom z jagnjeti
sem dočakal sonce polno cvrčkov in mravelj.
Prigomazela so še druga bitja
lepa kot slika deteta Jezusa.

Zazrte v vodo
so ribe prekrile pusto globino časa.
Zazrte v nebo
so pitce zapolnile globine prostora.
Zazrte v zemljo
so žuželke prekrile pustinjo življenja.
Molim k tebi, sveti moj Frančišek,
sezi k skrivnosti svojih ključev
odpri mi srce da bom izrazil ljubezen
prvemu bitju v prahu
kot je ta odvečna ovca na ulici
