Disguised by day, incessant thought

(and rarely sought because it's there
enfolding atoms everywhere)

the universe revealed tonight
invites new eyes inside its light

to fathom space past time and place
those fleeting zones of here or when

to contemplate eternity
that perfect singularity

whence every thing
once one would spring

into a trillion galaxies
innumerous realities

each fractal facet, star to soul
reflecting edges of the whole:

the sacred center most profound
where nothing's lost but ever bound.
