Melk Abbey's Baroque Garden Pavilion
Coffee in Paradise

A Glass of Grüner Veltliner
Somehow fitting, I was not sure
wether I was dead drunk or if
I had gone to heaven

After a leisurely stroll through Melk Abbey's
Baroque "Garden of Paradise"

I had walked up the steps and
entered the garden pavilion

and felt immediately
transported to a realm of dreams

Là, tout n’est qu’ordre et beauté,
Luxe, calme et volupté *

Le monde s’endort
Dans une chaude lumière *

You see, I was so enchanted, it was as if
my thoughts created an autopoietic language

that expressed itself
in cinematic poetry
