I breathe in your light, your peacefulness, your colours,
I breathe out my technique, my strategy, my layers.
I breathe in your stillness, your emptiness, white spaces,
I breathe out my pigments, my fillers, dark phases.
I breathe in your serenity, your harmony, your tranquillity,
I breathe out my stress, my discordance, anxiety.
I breathe in your quietness, your profoundness, your calmness,
I breathe out my anger, my fear, my darkness.
I am replenished with peace, and harmony,
You begin to dissolve in the great eternity.
