Sarah wrote this Poem during the Lockdown

Hammam
 
Backyard in Kreuzberg, herstory
Made inside the old chocolate factory
Orientaly blessed 
Ancient remedy that burns away stress
Hamam, Arabic, means heat
So close, yet woven from a Turkish beat
Difference of cultures evaporating in moist fog
In here time and clocks come to a stop
Communication on all levels
Women chatting, the clinking of silver vessels
Infrared, courtyard, cozy rooms, sauna
Dreams turn into foam, wash away trauma
Flowing water from basins on the walls
Rhythmic dousing of body and soul
Flushing away toxins, bad energies
Female way of physical creativity
Body and mind bathed in warmth, gentle light, like a prayer
Skin massaged, cleansed, particles falling layer by layer
In the center, on the hot navel stone
Relaxed, completely clean, embedded in a free zone
Warmth, moisture, touch, cleanse
A feast on all levels of sense
 
Poem von Sarah, Masseurin im Hamam, 5.3.2021  
Das Gedicht entstand während des langem Hamam-Entzugs aufgrund der coronabedingten Schließung
