Particles of flesh weave
the texture of my shell
in the ebb of the tide,
under the watchful eye
of the moon.
Air, water and fire united
to mass, weight, earth
in a pattern so infinite
it mesmerizes my gaze.
They constitute in an ever
changing unison of form,
colliding into elliptical swerves,
like super eight volcanoes.
I am here, under the toes of elves,
nimbly fingering my inmost being,
from molecules so minuscule
they elude my consciousness,
to veils so vast they expand far beyond.
And when the light goes on,
even if just for an instant, I absorb
bubbles of effervescent geometry
before my close-lid eyes.
Manifesting the archetypes
of an awareness I did not know
Colors so bright, so ethereal,
like flowers blooming,
the next moment gone.
Only to find a knot in my spine,
a grovel in the bark of an old tree,
its growth arcane.
Roots of my being break through
to rivulets of energy, a dimension
so warm, so beautiful
it fills me with ecstasy.
In the bliss of a moment’s kiss
the body electric sees itself:
alive and held
full and empty
finite and eternal
one with all creation.
I open my eyes to the darkness of the hall
and sing within my being
to the forces above and within.
The truth now lies instilled
in a wave of tears.
Salt and earth sediment together
as kernels yielded from years of forming,
on a journey where love and trust
are linked with the fibers
of a mesh that resounds
A fleeting overload of sensations
fills me, sucking on breast,
the fuzziness of a peach.
Thin grasses swaying,
coated by a white mantle of ice,
nod translucent to the tangerine glow.
The disc of light makes its way
above the horizon,
while my heart exults
in the force of creation.
One stem at a time
I sweep and arch from sky to earth,
cloud, grass, pebbles and stream.
In the violet hour I sing
to the harmony of the seraphim sky,
surrounded by the symphony
of all creation.
Its oneness brims over
and holds me
awash in a transitory glimpse of eternity.
I wave to the oncoming night and the star filled sky.
A salute to that emptiness
that is fullness.
