First Life On Earth
What are you discovering,
Being whole and
Sometimes I feel you like sunlight
growing me into a world where
people awaken like ripening fruit
and nakedness is more
than being undressed.
And what do you find strange?
How now is spinning around a star.
How we see through black circles.
How the sky is heaven-blue in daylight
and open-dark at night.
How a flock of birds bursts into flight
all at once.
