by Roy K Austin
As time - lapse on a camera
the night sky swirls around the bluff,
though what we see is relative,
our shutter speed is quite enough !
Enough to know the moment is
when all the world seems far behind,
those leonids inside my head
have fed the wonder of my mind ;
for what evokes that endless space
to parallel the space in me ?
The art in that kaleidoscope -
what subtlety ! What poetry !
That glint from Jupiter is still
and steady for the naked eye,
the plough is out above the house,
the crescent moon has said goodbye !
From Towards Atman.
