  • It is not the lustful thoughts,
    the movement of the womb,
    the friction of the skin of his soul…
    that temptation breaking the stillness,
    and twisting like delicate rose’s petals,
    the borders of his mouth.
    It is not the weaving of a thread
    made with a dreamt progeny….
    expectancies of wisdom and greatness.
    It is not the bliss of an outburst of ejaculation,
    out of nacar and moon juice.
    Not the scent of a resting woman.
    so old as the same sun…
    so young as the same moon…
    so round as the same heart,
    so tender as the same nest
    of his mother’s breast.
    He meditates….
    upon his own, re-birth.
    Repeating the seconds ,
    when he was she…
    mother,lover, in one.
    Self generating the world,
    out of the water of God.
    out of no one…
    out of any woman….
    being one…
    she the eternal virgin,
    I…. the eternal lover.
    Spiritual genesis…
    clean, bloodless….
    in complete silence,

Poor Buddah….
She is laying dormant,
as Nature when it is growing.
You have disregarded the palpitating
substance, for you need to touch, to feel,
and, believe… sensing the body of your dreams.
There….temptation…. there…
is not in the flesh..
but in the arrogance…
of the Spirit…
dried of… “Viriditas”.

    Me has dejado muda…
    Te admiro por muchos motivos.
    Esta imagen es una belleza.
    Todavia no leo el poema…
    Lo hare y vuelvo.
    Un abrazo

  • ¿Te quedaste muda?
    Bueno…. tu y yo conocemos un secreto..
    pero ya ves…. no lo es tanto.
    Un besote

    Muy bien dicho Rosa; digo, si he comprendido bien tu poesia. Creo que nuestro viaje por esta realidad es precisamente para explorarla sensualmente y a la vez participar en la creacion.
    El imagen me intriga mucho. Hay suficiente sombra para illustrar el misterio, y al mismo tiempo has incluido un toque perfecto de luz y de naturaleza.

  • Hasa comprendido bien la poesía…. si. En realidad es algo de inspiración en la idea de Scorses con la película “The Last Chirst’s Temptation” que me encanta. Por la propia idea de sentirse tentado a vivir no cómo un héroe crístico sino cómo un ser humano lleno de pasión y dolor, pero de felicidad, de placer, de sentirse carne. Al final… es uno de mis propios sueños… prefieron un Buda encarnado a uno metafísico… no creo en la metafísica.. y me encanta… me envuelve con su…. “tentación”
    Gracias Richard.

    Hi Rosa, I am not sure of all the words, but I have always felt that these religious icons, ‘masters of self’, have all fallen short by not follwoing through with the joining of male and female to recreate the eternal pulse and understand it completely. If that is your opinion also, then hail to you, queen of heaven.

  • Oh… it is more than that…
    What I think is…
    What a proud and “deviated” neuron could possible make some human minds conceive that the woman…being a woman….is just sinful, and that for being spiritual you have to live ascetically ?
    What if their mothers would have thought that what they did was an impure act and that even menstruation was impure… and all this nonsense…
    Oh..yes.. they did it.. and then, when things started to be put in a tight way, they decided to that those wonderful and mithical men….Jesus, Budhha, were human, yes… but being born from a virgin…what does it mean..but absolute despise for the act of giving Life to Man.?
    The worse of the sins is the the sin of “spiritual pride”…
    The darkest of the “Dark Night of the Soul” is the one of the saints.
    So what is the temptation….but an spiritual pride disguised as yearning for extreme spirituality. Sorry…. I get hot!
    Thanks a lot for your visit and insight. I agree with you…so hail to you …too.
    A hug.
