The Sun

the sun
incandescent sphere
permanent explosion
its core
pouring itself out for us
source    
to a hamlet of planets
asteroids and comets
human trajectory
unfolds in this orbit
between wandering stars
and the invincible Sun
 
 
imagine when the heart of the Sun
goes supernova
instantly swallowing the distance
between us
the wet earth
a single tear
will finally merge with your fiery body
 
 
I've felt your heart beat
since the universe was plasma
 
 
ancient always new perpetual dawning
horizon of light
and arcing shadow
string of days and nights
primeval rhythm
 
 
the sky and the earth are lovers
who've been forced apart
earth yearns for the sky
clouds long to kiss ocean
mountains rise up with desire
 
 
Himalaya, Appalachia, Sierra, Shasta, Fuji, Kenya, Denali
 
 
the cosmos: a journey
the universe: longing
 
 
each human: a body of water
 
 
sunlight enters a drop of water
and disperses
into colors, sunlight
enters planet earth and species blossom
 
 
sacred secret
 
 
granite, sequoia, redwood, oak
salamander, condor, beetle
 
 
radiant Sun
earth your disciple
apostle with strange powers
to manifest the mystery
 
 
the changing moon: a triple goddess
silver bow of Artemis
becomes
full moon becomes
the goddess of the dark
moon
wandering
among souls of the dead
announced by howling dogs
she dwells on tombs
and lonely places where two roads
cross
 
 
every prophet
must make peace
with death
 
 
a sacred secret
 
 
imagine when your heart
goes supernova
blazing matter extending across 93 million
miles,
the wet earth
a singe tear
will finally merge with your fiery body
 
 
golden light in cobalt sky
illumination of spaciousness
blue like Krishna's blue body
blue like the cosmos
