Shimmer

Embrace the Shimmer Curtain

part of: SphinxWorld

by Carlos William Morado

Pour into the portal.
Break the ripple surface.
Join, shatter, connect
with the opague
threshold
of the most fluid
element.
Cross to the
other side of
the shimmer
surface.
Walk through
the mirror
like threshold.
Pour into
the opague
portal.
Not a wall, a door.
Shatter, connect, join.
Enter the shimmer curtain.
Wrap yourself in its luscious
embrace,
and be quenched like water
my friend,
become one with the threshold,
a wise person said
to be like water…
my friend, like water.



Coda



Something is moving across
the surface of the water.
Its form is amorphous
yet embryonic.
Swirling, blending,
spinning, and whirling.
Annihilating division,
hatching forth from
its shelllike confine,
emerging.
Voila.
It is becoming.
