"Pietá."...Marriage of Spirit and Flesh

The eyes of Heaven,
are lighting your pain,
Mother of Life-Death.
The eyes of Earth are two roses…
the daughters of a tired sun…
Son of the Human Dimension.
I cannot pray..
do not find what to pray for..
and my look is moving in circles…
from your head… Mother..
to his head… Son..
and to the feet..
sacred makers of God´s pathways.
He seems light as a feather..
soaked in the moisted death.
Sweet carelessness..
as Death produces..
while resting in Love´s arms.
You are Huge… not frail.
You are Kali…the giver of Life..
the Promise of Death..
You are not a woman…
neither a man.
You are She… the weaver of Life..
The magnificent hips…
sustaining the Body..
ready for transformation.
I just look and see behind…
the nacar stained-glass..
windows… eyes of Heaven..
You both…
glimmering ..like
polished ivory.
Bones….limbs… of God.

Artist's Description

I usually write “a-new” in this section.
But… lately I have loaded an image that it is really meaning for me… and the words that emerged rom my heart… are transcribing what my Soul has projected while working on it.. and contemplating it.
This is the reason why I am changing my own “rule” and posting the poem in this section. If someone feels curious about the image … you can go here
