Sooner or later

Gaia has her way with us

all will be seduced.

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

honeybees.

In a great heat

Mother/Father

stir the nothingness

into boundless waves

to seed the multiverse:

.

Octave after octave

of radiance and light –

seven times seventy

explodes through the emptiness

with stars, planets, moons.

.

Life-forms rise and fall

across the infinitude,

and here and there

some find the path

to their effulgent source.

.

And those few tell their truth

in parable and allegory

hoping to teach others —

but most misunderstand

and instead create gods

forged in their own images.

.

Yet now and then

a smoldering ember

bursts into white flame

and Mother/Father smiles

as another shimmering soul

spirals home.
