Draft - A vastness

A vastness expands within me,
inside a particle with no measure -
like an instant of space.

I am much smaller.
It threatens to explode,
I will fall from this horizon.

My heart opens,
I spill forth like a fountain. The gates
also open, then flood
my body,

a symphony through my veins, tumbling,
symmetries, crystals, paper flowers.

I spill from this wound and into
the night of space, into a cave buffeted by wind,
onto heavy seas under winter rain.

A silent child stands under a tree,
above him a leaf shining in warm sunlight,
around them

many worlds flutter and spin, drawn
to the center they define
just by breathing together
free from death.
