Drink Deeply from my Soul

Here’s a reflective poem by Anca. She begins from the self and transcends to the other-worldly, cosmic world, the greater identity.

Drink deeply from my soul,
this imitation of Life you may forget
just remember our dreams and desires…

I have been known you
as the One, the Unbounded,
the Known and Unknown,
the Infinite
inside the small and great,
as the Knower of my knowing
Sacred…. and Profane,

Drink deeply from my soul,
and let your breath dress my eyes
into the well of living and adoration…

You are the One!
And… I am the Self!
The seer of sight, where vision
own no eyes,
just rainbows bloom
in the heat of the night,
and forests grow inside the desert,
there… our oasis of souls,
we shall feed one another
from the grapes of wraith
and nourish our weary lives with Life.

Into the endless forest we roam,
meandering in the Paradise Lost
along the cold mountain stream we spend
in our garden of Eden our worries end!…

Me… and You!
without yesterdays and tomorrows,
just conjugated by the verb of Today!…

Drink deeply from my soul,
beloved one,
learn the science
of my name’s metempsychosis,
so my songs may reveal the mystery
of your bleeding longing…

You know, the blueprinting
of the Heart of the Hearts,
in this Time continuum
of All that it IS!

Your stardust free verses songs,
awakens the Presence
of my Essence!

Drink deeply from my soul
and let questions come in
…and fall out
of this Existence!….

See the Beauty beyond the Beauty,
let your breath sing different sizes
of Life,
built in a scarlet octave,
so your words will grow younger!

Let the flavor of your Being-ness
Explode into this Existence!

Drink deeply from my soul
and the Word will be undressed
from the World!…
