The Temple

Inside this temple are mountains and rivers
there are forests of oak, mountain lions and moss

Seismic shifts and lightening bolts are inside
innervating every silent thought

All the dancing impulses of nature are here
laughter, grief, hunger   swirling
in the winds    and time

There is ecstatic music, echoing through these chambers
and starlight – all the infinite stars

Ruminations of the cosmos are within
this poet
inside this body,
is the one I love
