                                        The Voice
                                         is a wife

                                         him still.
                                                            – Gary Snyder (”Regarding Wave”)

Light rides on a wave
in a dream from space
connecting all things,

especially the architecture
of man floating
in the bigger picture:

endings become beginnings
of new things
like shadows hooked

to a bare oak trees—
or the reflection
of a space station

come alive in a black
ocean of stars,
if far enough away—

if we stay small enough
to listen, if we stay still
and wake slowly

                    to both sides
                    like a bell.
