I want to talk to you about power.
What I mean is:
That first robin to sing just before dawn.
A spring breeze across your cheek.
The crocus opening the day before a snowstorm.
You want to talk about tsunami-s?
Let me tell you about how every blade of grass
Is a full-on party of blade of grassness.
How the cricket sings among the leaves every evening –
Being 100% cricket.
No audience required.
Hurricanes, earthquakes, raging oceans?
How about the dark side of the moon
That has never once wondered
How you are doing.
Welcome, sweet lover.
Please – make yourself at home.
