The Cell

Exciting, exotic, exquisitely beautiful world

in its immensity

builds from the miniscule cell

constructive, destructive

instructive.

Roar of the storm outside

quiets silent turmoil inside.

as my thoughts jump

from one to another

while sitting in the shower stall

soaking my feet.

What can this jumble of cells stir within?

Pattern/patterns of the cell/cells —

in the glass and out

change as my head moves

and light glows through the window

from vast ether beyond

while white world sprinkled with inky lines

obliterates seeds of creation’s bond.

These too swirl.

Creation, destruction

re-creation.

All is one

one in all

from a cell.

How can this miracle of cells that is me

I perform best before I rest while alive?

Should I even try?

Yes!
