Night Skies

Born on the Second Day
from a starless vault,
they waited patiently
for your first heartbeat.

Though they were huge
and blue
they were not complete
without you.

Night Skies
gave you Life
and filled your eyes
with sparkles of light

so that you can
fill the sky with stars
and give the world
a little more Love.

No Border

there is no border
between the Tree and the Sky

between the Leaf and the Wind
wild Flowers and Wayfarers

no border between
the River and the Sea

the Eyes and the World
the Word and the Dream

the Potter and the Clay

float in the sky
the sun warms the vertiginous peak
obsidian cliffs shine in the blinding light of hidden stars
and the cascade roars with laughter as it rushes down
to the one billion-years chasm
and the Soul shudders
when God says

all this
