This peculiar rising glow of comfort
mirroring the newborn sun’s embrace
has been noted. I ride my bike to have
coffee – with coconut milk – typically a no-no
but I follow my advice to be deliberate.
The air is brisk like never so my fingers
get a sense of their mortality. This green
beanie reminds me of gnomes, and giants,
and other underrepresented minorities.
Nature loves novelty, it gets us to mix genes
for the purpose of furthering a colored
ecology. What a thrill to find a partner to
sail these hard-wood seas with. I flapped my
eye-patterned wings and danced my dance,
surrendered to the moment and the fear.
And here in my shoes the feeling rises from
deep lower spine, swirling upwards, always
upwards, fiery electric current, joyous, it’s
origin familiar yet unknown, inviting me
further into my body, abode of divine knowing,
seeker and carrier of secrets, happy to be.
