Swimming with the fishes


Photo by Hari Baumbach.


Deep dive in mirror reflecting
the world portrayed by its opposite.

Visions of the soul’s gap transformed into its senses
blessed, profuse, diffuse.

Unfolding into feelings
of a wet body in the flowing river.

From a flow before asleep
of resonances.

In the submerged landscape
in motion.

The sudden appearance of forms, creatures
[which reflect the world portrayed by its opposite].

On a path contrasted by the sky
by the clouds and the light.

In the nature of the aquatic universe
to make sustained speeches about the existence.

The water par excellence.

The origin of everything.

One Response to Swimming with the fishes

  1. This poem translate the flow sensation of the water and the creatures of the liquid world, and at the end mirror the clouds and sky like the time and space in a magical voyage of senses and writing.
