Tight-clenched bud

lets go

its knotty grip

and rigid reveries


yields its petals

to the pull

of sunlight

through the trees


all the while

Gaia smiles

and sends for

In a great heat


stirred the nothingness

into boundless waves

to seed the multiverse:


Octave after octave

of radiance and light –

seven times seventy

exploded through the emptiness

with stars, planets, moons.


Life-forms rose and fell

across the infinitude

and here and there

some found the way

to their effulgent source.


And those few told their truth

in parable and allegory

hoping to teach others

but most misunderstood

and instead created gods

forged in their own images.


Yet now and then

a smoldering ember

burst into white flame

and Mother/Father smiled

as another shimmering blaze

spiraled home.
