Can you pour the ocean into a thimble?
Can you honor Woman in one Day?
The whole lifespan of Lord Shiva
is just a breath in her eternity.
Earth spins on the spine of her stillness.
Planets circle their stars because
her darkness is awake.
The sun drips from the edge of her bowl
that is always overflowing.
We drank from her before we were born,
trillions of galaxies suspended like dust
in the golden beam of her gaze.
When She closes her eyes,
there is fullness.
When she opens them, we dance.
