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

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.

Sooner or later

Gaia has her way with us

all will be seduced.
