In shimmering sun I stand, A moment-point At whose intersection Comes to be All I am, All I see. From cell to cell Rebound The rays of sun-life That sustain The outward me. But I am More than simply real; In me swirl Times and places Beyond comprehending In their complexity. From this moment-me They extend eternally. By twos, by fours, Exponentially They expand With endless possibility, Until every self I can conceive Is itself conceptualized In some probability At once remote Yet beating gently In my heart of hearts. Oh thousand million suns That shine O'er my billion souls! Come share with me Your golden rays, Warm and free! Let eyes that see Learn mystic vision; Let bones that feel, Feel sinews Taunt in other worlds. This tree's roots Delve deep in soil Mortals never know, Where time is slow And rain runs Clear as melted snow. Oh, the wonders Of worlds we do not see But feel! From these shadows We reel But return again And again To sense and feel.
