A Sequence of Embraces

A Sequence of Embraces

by Irina Kuzminsky

I have spoken to the birds of Paradise

Bright—coloured
Why go there to seek the houri?
She walks beside you on the sacred earth.

     ***
I am air
I am the wind’s embrace
Warm breeze caressing skin
Zephyrs ruffling hair
Cold gusts sharpening minds
Storm winds to ride to your destiny
And whirlwinds to clear out your house —

May the winds come to you
From the North, East, West, South
Choose the wind your life needs
In your seasons of need
My embrace
The embrace of the wind

***
Not my embrace — but fire
Not my waves — but water
Not my touch — but air
That you may know the sacredness of earth

***
Embrace me and embrace soul
Lips to lips
Eyes to eyes
Awakening me — you
Awaken

***
I embrace and assert what I am
Serving you serve my essence
Comingle with me and awaken into emptiness
Penetrate me and know your own depths

For I am She who flows
She who changes
I am She who awakens
Desire — Your desire for your
Life

***
Be not afraid
To break all forms with love
I say —
Let nightingales sing in the rose of your heart.

***
This final service I have now performed
— so free me of embraces
Of all that I agreed to
before I came

***
Troubadours and troubatritzes have long sung
Of the secret
I proclaim: let love remove every covering
So shall I go naked
Into the rain
— And dance

***
Fill the core at my centre Beloved
And release the song in me
The dance in me
Thus centred and grounded
Words flow
Bodies flow
And I sing
