Seta Krikorian - WHEN YOU SHOW UP

When you show up
In the solitude of my damp night
Meadow saffrons take shape…

My dreams sport a body
And my yearnings – visions of the soul –
Rock my distress with mellow whispers
You
On the trails of my blood
Erect domes of oblivion
Where our lovelorn souls
Leak blue flames
On the altar
Of mystery…

Ether by ether
We offer Mass
To delusion's parable

While our lips
Sublimating kisses
Sing the delivery of Light…


Poem by Seta Krikorian
Translated by Tatul Sonentz
