I walk along the forest floor, watching
as the mysteries pour forth
blooming evergreen weeds, struggling up
through the ground
looking to see if anyone’s around
they always wink at me
relating a resilience
and a broad-spectrum playfulness
inside the stars heavens, a mirror
takes two seconds more
in the dew
lingering on a leaf, just there
it sparkles like diamonds
and is radiant, containing the entire cosmic
of love, my love of you
and the love I feel for everyone and everything in view
Can you see it too?
