Garden of Mercy

Garden of Mercy

written by: Maciej Pająk (Matthew)


Hello wind, my dear wind
Let my pain fly into your gardens
My hidden pain, my “mea poena”
That is not hidden any longer.

So eventually
I am covered with the
Petals of merciful flowers.

Dwelling in the garden
Sleeping in the garden
Getting older in the garden
Smiling to the gentle
Morning butterflies…

So my soul is united
With green heaven of mercy
I need that mercy
In my weakest hours.

I’m going to stay here
Until autumn comes
Until winter comes
Until spring comes
Until my death comes…

My wind, my dear, friendly wind
Let my pain fly into your gardens
I will rest here

Maciej Pająk

Maciej Pająk (Matthew) was born in 1978 in Poland. Poet, athlete, globetrotter. A maritime navigator by education. A graduate of Maritime University. Laureate of poetry competitions. He writes in Polish and English. He made his debut in 2018 with a volume entitled "A night so blue" and then he published in 2019 a volume entitled "Blue Hourglass". His works appear in anthologies and magazines. Music has also been created for many poems. Maciej describes his remarkable observations with exceptional sensitivity, sometimes even feminine delicacy from a male point of view. This has a remarkable effect of complexity and ambiguity in how the reader might perceive his poems. Looking into the past, contemplating the future, delight, duty, pride, contemplation of beauty, falling in love. Originality - this is the basic feature of Maciej's poetry.
