Svensson: Temple and Tree (poem)

Hereby a poem, summing up the current being of its author, Lennart Svensson.

I am temple and tree,
the guru in the garden --

a golden guru going south,
a hat-clad don Juan,
Merlin the Magician --

a golden river flowing south,
arcane, hyaline, melting
the glacier of nihilism.

I am Martian Messiah,
Pleiadean Preacher --

"glowing God of Mars,
body burning bright" --

riding on the wind,
guided by the immemorial
voice of a myth --

teaching, preaching,
dreaming, scheming.

I am myth, math and metaphor,
the alchemy of time and

I am movement as a state
of mind: MAASOM.

I am a creative Self in
an ever-present Now.
