Reaching

None of the other tulip flowers
Has been as singular as this one
Bruised beetroot ruddy red layers
Lit at the tips by silver morning sun
It reaches out on steady stem swaying
Nodding in the air its head as if to say
My cup stretches catches light playing
Through my depths adoring this day
But my neck is strong leaning long
From the heavy bowl holding my body
And I open to death gladly scarlet song
Of my surrender my breathing nodding
Upturned clapper of a bell tolling the time
When these petals will fully open fall away
Break against a wall crucible of will chime
In resonant waves radiating reach to eternity

Omniverse

You are all possible permutations of expression
In the All-encompassing Omniverse.
The multitudinous seas of self-expression
Are sweeping and surging through you.
You are the polyamorous polymorphic
Perversity of the Universe to express itself in infinite ways.
In infinite waves you come and go, and come and go again.
You are the All-encompassing Omniverse
Omniversing thoughout eternity.

In endless arrays you compose all beings
In infinite intricate fractal rays. Light and
Form in interlaced everywheres – and everywhens
And everydays – til end of time and time again.
You are the All-encompassing Omniverse
The Living of all lives and deaths and waves
And ways of being in infinite ways, all at play
In this Only-Place of knowing
And being.
