'The Universe' by Mystic Poet

The Sun rises and set in my palms

granted I give each day her alms

for the blessing

and curse

lays in her


I think of her beauty

and marvel in her


Upon each day that

sets me before

her face.

Moves my hands

and legs to a

dance of


Lifts my tongue

to songs unknown

to gratitude.
