The poetic city: “The Secret Center of the Universe 6/23/12”

The Secret Center of the Universe  6/23/12
Walking along side Bayou St. John 
I chanced to notice an insect hovering over the water
It must have been the sunlight shooting through the trees
At just the right angle,
At just the right moment
To open my eye to his place in the universe
As he hovered over the bayou
As he did his dance 
As I did mine
As everything danced around us
I found myself at the secret center of the universe
While walking beside Bayou St. John
