Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Arthur Rimbaud – from Rimbaud Complete [translated by Wyatt Mason]
From a golden slope – among silk ropes, grey veils, green velvets, and crystal discs that blacken like the bronze of the sun – I watch the foxglove open on a carpet of silver filigree, eyes and hair.
Pieces of yellow gold scattered over agate, mahogany pillars supporting an emerald dome, bouquets of white satin and delicate sprays of rubies surround the water rose.
Like some god’s enormous blue eyes staring from within a silhouette of snow, sea and sky attract a crowd of strong young roses to the marble steps.
