Drifting dust by Gema Moraleja Paz book Spines of Salt

Drifting dust (Translation of ‘Polvo errante’, p. 14 in Espinas de sal)

 

Silencing the drifting dust

I am a miner of fate

and pierce your subconscious

to thresh your forgetting,

I nourish your thought

with an adornment of stars

and pour out the heavens

so that your lips

may drink directly

from the fields of the universe.

As above, so below,

everything’s transformed,

life, trees, people, cities,

we are all dust,

drifting dust of coagulated seed

in the belly of the clouds

that turns to liquid

to moisten souls.
