I’ve known a river of bodies
Like a downpour of stars
And creative suns conjuring
The destiny of so many little ones
I’ve seen reptiles come out of oceans
And lovers come and go
I am the creation of what I see
The eye that watches another season
Is it really any different from the last?
I’ve known faces, a few thousand
Their water of truth, their truth of water
And music like songs, so many songs
And storms as thunder, lightning, rain
The sound of the rain was a multitude
Of rain drops kissing the earth
And pollen that is caressed by the wind
And flowers, so many flowers
All the colors of the known universe
Do other planets have flowers like these?
And other sentient beings, do their eyes
Cry in the drumbeat of time, the silent hum?
I’ve opened you and I’ve been beaten by you
And life, naked in my mind explores
An unlacing, a spreading, reproducing the ripples.
