I Remember

I recall the scent of autumn in the light;
I remember how the wind sang of hope,
Rocks, changing their shapes in the sun
Mountain springs, equally present and gone;
I remember how it felt
To return;
/
For a day I was light, water and wind,
Speaking their language — body and mind,
Crying shamelessly and wildly when I
Heard them whisper: ‘you are not a mistake’;
I remember how it felt
To survive
/
I remember reaching the Earth’s
Very burning heart with my fingertips;
My eyes being one with those of the sky,
I could see without attachment;
I remember
Being alive
/
I recall true joy
Beyond good and evil –
One day,
Which could fill a whole life with meaning;
I remember stepping over
Oblivion
/
And awakening
From a crumbling dream
