The longing that keeps us restless,

Is a longing for a village.

This longing is taking us

To places far away.

What does this village

Look like in our hearts?

The village that we seek

Here, there and everywhere;

How does it smell?

How does it feel?

How does it move?

How does it stand still?

How does it hold me?

How does it hold you?

How does it respond?

When you say ‘I belong to you’?

What do you say?

When the village whispers back,

‘I belong to you too’.?
