Artist's Description

Poetry By Ilya Shambat

I’ll see you on the Great Barrier Reef
As universe around us explodes -
And is transformed into the light – and if
It lives, will we live too, do you suppose?

I’ll meet you in that world beyond belief -
The world where love and hope spring eternal -
Where in each moment Passion is achieved
And soars into Sublime from the Infernal -

As Nonexistence struggles to deceive -
We’ll be the truth’s embodiment, sweet beauty!
The life-force rushing through us like a sieve
And rising to the stars, no more polluted.

How much magnificence can you conceive?
How much, as unison of soul and matter?
Thus blood from our hearts will be retrieved
And over all of Humankind will scatter -

There to impart the healing and relief
There to impart the wisdom and the kindness
There to impart this passion – that can live
The world that is exploding behind us!

To alter all that has been misconceived -
To reach into the core of every atom -
To give, and see to it that is received
All that we feel and all that we have fathomed.

And if one dies and, paralyzed with grief,
The other wants to dive into the ocean,
We’ll be there – on the Great Barrier Reef -
Frozen in time, in passion and devotion.
