a poetic meditation,
an ode to the uplifting forces carrying and supporting life.
It’s a murmur, it’s a song.
Inspired by natural cycles, elements and their interplay,
diving into a space of liquid time,
falling and rising,
a continuous becoming.

Time is a cool liquid.
It flows away like a river.
We shall see no end of it.
There is no end to becoming.
I praise the moment I die in fire
for the veils of illusion burn with me.
I see how hard we strive for truth,
and once attained
how easily we forget.
I hold that fire as long as I can.
To live is to die a thousand deaths,
but there is only one fire,
one eternity.THE EGYPTIAN BOOK OF THE DEAD
