Axolotl Poem Example

The Axolotl

English version by Liviu Martinescu

- a solo nijuin renku -

waves covered in wind
in our blood the salt of the sea
is seeking the shore

autumn clouds scattered
by viola d'amore

insatiably drinking in
the image of those conches
lurking amongst barren poplars

devious ways in
a square black against white

stuck between word and shadow
a salamander

I would twirl your red hair
in yellow rings

through rolls of thick fog
to meet the axolotl
bearing the face of my beloved

afloat away from our own selves
among unknown engravers

in the foreign harbour
sink the eternal sky

in the long forgotten bell
crickets have taken shelter

melting wax 
covers the books
of metamorphosis

smoky chrysalides
rise from among vowels

the shape of the larva
slowly yields the contour
of your absence

my palm feels the vortex
of your frozen name

a scream snowed under
albatrosses with myrtle in their beaks
shattering the moon

how changed the last
water dwellings

a cluster of birches
from one being into another
music will pass

it's only the sound of time
that entices grass to germinate

amongst plum blossoms
the hourglass sends up its sand
up/down to the last grain

deep into lilac woods
fire devouring fire
