Buoy the population of the soul
Toward their destination before they drown

There is a motionless tree - Octavio Paz


                                                There is a motionless tree  
                                                 there is another that moves forward  
                                                                 a river of trees  
                                                 pounds at my chest  
                                                                 The green swell  
                                                 of good fortune  

                                                 You are dressed in red  
                                                                 you are  
                                                 the seal of the burning year  
                                                 carnal firebrand  
                                                                 star of fruit  
                                                 I eat the sun in you  

                                                                 The hour rests  
                                                 on a chasm of clarities  

                                                 The birds are a handful of shadows  
                                                 their beaks build the night  
                                                 their wings sustain the day  

                                                 Rooted at the light's peak  
                                                 between stability and vertigo  
                                                                 you are  
                                                         the diaphanous balance.
