Foggy little fog

Cecilia Vicuña

Fibrous little fog!

Foggy centipede



fertility dancing


We must take care of her flames!

Take care of her smoothness!


How beautiful!

How bountiful!


She said and awoke


Thus she brought all this

back in view


Thus she raised it

shining in its crisscross


Sacred little fire!


Offering of grain
