So Close to Infinity

inferno

It’s the time the forests burn

And the inflamed heaven

Lights the earth

In the natural event of genesis.

The colors disappear slowly

In the dance of live fire.

Now I’m close

to infinity and

to death.

The dizzying vortex gives me

Only a landmark

To take me,

To bring me back ?…

I ! I myself if I could

Understand this mystery

Before even destroying it

By looking at it.

Ecaterina Staicu, Aproape sunt de infinit
