The Dance of Ten Thousand Suns     (3/1/15)

When the breeze kicks up 

And the surface of the bayou ripples

With wavelets at just the right pitch  

To capture the streaking light 

At just the right angle,

The curtain rises to reveal

The dance of ten thousand suns 


Each sun, a reflection of the source

And a world in itself,

                        Flashes in and out of existence…                       

Faster than the blink of an eye    

Dancing together in a furious choreography

They offer glimpses of infinite possibility 

And the signature of all things
