Confluence

Let's meet 
at the confluence
where you flow into me
and one breath
swirls between our lungs

for one instant
to dwell in the pretense of the galaxies
for one instant
to live in the heart 
the poet says this entire traveling cosmos is
the poet says this entire traveling cosmos is 
'the secret' ONE slowly growing a body'

two eagles are mating
clasping each ether's claws
and turning cartwheels in the sky
grasses and blooming
grandfathers dying,
consciousness blinking on and off
all of this happening at once
all of this, vibrating into existence
out of nothingness

every particle 
foaming into existence
transmuting the ineffable

arising and passing away
arising and passing away
23 trillion times per second 
when Buddha saw that
he smiled

16 million tons of rain are falling every second
on the planet
an ocean
perpetually falling
and every drop
is your body
every motion, every feather, every thought
is your body
time
is your body
and the infinite
curled inside like
invisible rainbows folded into light
