Welcome to solstice, friend.
radiant zenith here,
heart of winter
somewhere else.
You are the photon
at the core of the sun,
the beauty of blackness
at the center of fire.
Have you gazed into
your own eyes?
Don't just see the light,
be the light.
What is beyond the rim
of the farthest galaxy
pervades a particle of dust
in your belly button.
