The Sea

I need the sea because it teaches me, 

I don’t know if I learn music or awareness, 

if it’s a single wave or its vast existence, 

or only its harsh voice or its shining 

suggestion of fishes and ships. 

The fact is that until I fall asleep, 

in some magnetic way I move in 

the university of the waves.


It’s not simply the shells crunched 

as if some shivering planet 

were giving signs of its gradual death; 

no, I reconstruct the day out of a fragment, 

the stalactite from a sliver of salt, 

and the great god out of a spoonful.

What it taught me before, I keep. It’s air 

ceaseless wind, water and sand.


It seems a small thing for a young man, 

to have come here to live with his own fire; 

nevertheless, the pulse that rose 

and fell in its abyss, 

the cracking of the blue cold, 

the gradual wearing away of the star, 

the soft unfolding of the wave 

squandering snow with its foam, 

the quiet power out there, sure 

as a stone shrine in the depths, 

replaced my world in which were growing 

stubborn sorrow, gathering oblivion, 

and my life changed suddenly: 

as I became part of its pure movement.
