Background

A description of the experience

Haiku by Tomas Tranströmer - Translated by Robert Archambeau and Lars-Håkan Svensson

IV

The ceiling rent open
and the dead one sees me.
This face.

Something has happened.
The moon lit up the room.
God knew about it.

Hear the sighing rain.
I whisper a secret, to reach
all the way in there.

A scene on the platform.
What a strange calm –
the inner voice.

The source of the experience
