Marshland hamlets

Marshland hamlets

Little hamlets bake under the sun

on tiny stretches of land surrounded by water

When you look at them from afar

they resemble a maze

and you ignore from where to pass to reach them

on the back of your horse


If you close your eyes and band those of your mount

you will surely end up in one of those ponds

but if you open your eyes and scrutinize the landscape

you won’t move a step forward


You then start practicing a dance of the eyes

closing them when you need to go forward

and opening them not to fall in the water all around



About Erik Vincenti Zakhia

Dear all, I will share with you many of my poems, short stories, drawings and paintings telling of my journey of self-discovery and my reflections about life, love, art, spirituality, sexuality, kundalini rise, and twin flames. You will also come across many paintings by Chantal Peguiron that are intimately related to my artwork. They all fall within the realm of Hazen.
