Manasula Hotel

Image illustrating a poem about the Nepal HimalayasMocco Wollert

We sat around the fire
time was void,
the whole world contained
in glowing branches
into which we lost our thoughts.
Silently and thick
the snow was falling
but there was no outside,
neither doors
nor windows
only a fire
at the centre of our lives.
