Beloved Bhuveneswari

beloved MahaMaya
beloved Bhuvaneswari

your utter vastness
is a honeyed balm 
of comfort…

tasting upon my tongue
your infinite form and formlessness,
your inherent, generous inclusion; 

every cell
every breath
every shimmering, etheric strand;

is infused
with the flavor of you…

bird
bark
stream
doe 
thunder
mother
clenched fist
gentle breeze
stranger’s smile
blackened night
forgiveness
verdant sprout
blazing fire
tender bee
feathered wing 
first breath
aching bones
fragile shell
beloved
storm clouds
moist moss
fruit
fetid decay
gentle mountain
regret
quiet mouse
belly laughter
ocean depths
resistance
precious child
compassion
broken promises
hidden treasure
blossom
mighty lion
fretful worrier
warm lap
last breath
kindling
tenacious weed
grace
excruciating longing
somatic union
surrender
ice
earth
vulnerable heart
shadow
shooting star
gushing fountain

you are the breath inside the all in all,
the great cosmic dancer;

the matrix of 
galaxies,
wonder inside chaos,
limitless possibility,
disintegrating boundaries…

fleetingly merging
with the edges your immensity,
diminutive delicacy,
holistic beauty,
mesmerizing mystery;

sensing you breathing me,
weaving me 
into the fabric 
of the consciousness 
of evolution;

in breath
out breath
one breath...
