Breath of the Sea

The sea breathes within me

Long, quiet waves savouring the first breath of life

The wind blows within me

A fresh breeze guiding me without pushing me. It knows where to go, and I do not oppose its guidance this time

Opposite memories arise

A stormy sea that breaks

Rock shining under the full moon, flashes of a life that becomes its opposite in every grain

Sand raised by a harsh wind that scatters and wipes out

Dull thunder, explosions, the heart breaks along with the whole creation

A spot of pain obscuring the joy and life that preceded it

I look downward and see only destruction

I look upward and see what has already been

Everything condensed into a grain of sand, which in turn explodes as if it were the entire universe

It explodes and reveals its history to me

It was a future I have already lived, but now I know of a different future yet to live, returning to breathe the breath of life, of the sea, of the wind, of the sand

I breathe in them, and they breathe within me, a harmony that reminds me of a distant perfection, different in concepts and meanings

Absence of meanings, useless in the wholeness of what has been

And I find myself in the breath of the sea, in the rustling of the wind, beyond all space and time yet present in every time, space and form.
