The Vistula is burning
Although the ecological catastrophe is a current nightmare, slowly we begin to foresee brighter visions of the times to come after the chaos. The ecological crisis became present in our consciousness and being experienced in everyday living, it influenced an unbelievable reaction of imagination. It occurred such a style of narration which penetrates language to find cultural patterns and metaphors for describing the weird, non-discursive but real. Burning water as the collision of two elements is the kind of new birth.
