What is this magnificent swelling
of feeling inside me ?
An unbounded capacity to hold
all the love in the universe
I did not know it existed-
A sweet surprise – a joy.
The swelling of the waves
under the gravity of the moon
Not knowing what makes it dance so.
Nothing is the same in this light-
I stay up all night.
The morning rises-the waves return
to their ordinariness
Holding the secret of midnight dance.
Acting like nothing happened.
But if you look closely, you’ll see
a glimpse of the lightning madness.
A moment is enough to sustain a lifetime.
In ordinariness, a knowing that
you are anything but that.
