World Mountain



Galleri Majnabbe 1994




Seas gnaw heavy on mountain of time

and mountains meet in the sea of time.

In place of forests the fish valleys deepens.

Where seas rested now forests sighing cool.

World clock is ticking and space glitters.

All switches position and ordinal numbers.

However, they are counted, the world's hours

on Gaurisankar, in the sea valley.
