First And Last Woman

She is the first and last woman;
Her hair is one thousand color waterfalls, nature briefed in her two almond eyes, her eyebrows two gardens riding on astonishment whispers, her cheeks two apples rolling down from Paradise always fleeing away and never coming back.

She is the first and last woman;
Her mouth is the shape of the ever wished kiss along the roads from the far beginning to the far end, her shoulders two white fillies, her bosom the timed pomegranate always about to explode. Her wrist is a thin thread wrapped around erecting necks of wild geese, her legs ivory stairs binding land’s heart with the heart of the impossible.

She is the first and last woman;
From her feet Earth is hanging, on her locks poets swing, from her ears Muses dangle. Her eye-lashes are the air-fans for gods on top of old heights. At her voice violins dance, her breaths are shepherds’ flutes.

She is the first and last woman;
She is the most beautiful vain up to pains’ last limits,
She is everything, without residues.
She is the body which ever rebels against physics.
She is bitter honey.
She is the nothing condensed in a cocoon.
She is the anything scattered in directions all.
She is the nymph born every day to dwell into nights.
She is the eternal being, opening mornings and hearts, breaking down gates guarded by fire.

She is the first and last woman;
She is the ever existing being, not born yet, but who never dies.
