Rebirth

Dark Void.

A tiger bites me to pieces.
The black shaman pushes me and my kisses away: « Not yet. You’re not purified yet »

Light Void.

The veil clears­­­
For the light awaits me behind
Uncompromising, absolute
Not a stain, nor a dot

From underneath the lake
Tall trees of a northern country
On both sides delineate
Across a luminescent sky
The grand reflection
A radical expression

Immaculate

Brightness of whites through the blue
Expands itself
It doesn’t need to know
It doesn’t need to say
Tears fall
From slits closed
Chest billows
I am lifted, overjoyed
For I have returned, intact

Stirred and dazzled
Pulled under waters
The wall thickens
Obliterating the evergreens
Of a northern country
Where the lakes are still
Mirrors of the heavens
