A Suite for Miss Helen: A Multiplicity of Dimensions 1/6/13
Sitting in the garden with Miss Helen
She counts the sparrows that come and go
And makes sure I don’t miss the show.
Pointing out every arrival and departure
She signals approval with a wink and a smile.
Meanwhile in the curl of the moment
Disguised as an ordinary event
Helen’s fascination reveals its essence
Forcing me to see the reality of timelessness
And the multiplicity of dimensions.
In the center of the known universe
Helen reveals a glimpse of Eden
