Beyond the unforgiving core

of gravity

she births herself

through molten rock

and hard-pan crust

into the space that soars

above the rant of tempests,

of burning bushes,

sun, moon,

the spin of stars

and far beyond

the fabled edges

of the universe

no longer up or down

but circling straight

into the riddle

of her Self.

Beyond the unforgiving

core of gravity

she births herself

through molten rock

and hard-pan crust

into the atmosphere

above the rant

of storms,

the burning bush,

the moon and sun

and spin of stars

far beyond

the fabled edges

of the universe

no longer up or down

but circling straight

into the riddle

of her Self.

Tides rise and curtsy

as the sea does a ballet

with old diva moon.

Like flat rocks

we skip across the surface

of the water,

every splash a lifetime,

each flight a brief reunion

with our divinity.

And so we hop across the sea

churning up new karmic waves

until the day we spot the flotsam  

in the wake of gravity

and leap into the noon-day sun

where dwells eternity.
