A Brief Interlude . . .

Happy Summer Solstice - Let your Inner Sun - S H I N E


C O N N E C T E D
.
.
.

My
body
a conduit
. . a temple . .

Gossamer threads
connect me
with light

with stardust
with stories

Twin serpents
coil and weave
around my
sturdy spine

caressing bone
creating sparks

My being is
tangled with
all that is

The exhaling
of the universe
etches me
with its
breath
.
