Spiritual Poems: “I AM” by Rolf Jacobse (translated from Norwegian)

I am the bird that knocks at your window in the morning
and your companion, whom you cannot know,
the blossoms that light up for the blind.

I am the glacier’s crest above the forests, the dazzling one

and the brass voices from cathedral towers.

The thought that suddenly comes over you at midday

and fills you with a singular happiness.


I am one you have loved long ago.

I walk alongside you by day and look intently at you

and put my mouth on your heart

but you don’t know it.


I am your third arm and your second

shadow, the white one,

whom you don’t have the heart for

and who cannot ever forget you.

—Rolf Jacobse

  1. Excellent words so well penned by the poet Rolf on I AM. I AM all that and more. As the great teachers tell us to focus every single day on the I AM and not on the Body. Such a cute little bird, Amira. Loved its tenderness.
