A Sense of Self

The sky was                                                                                                                                                                                                        swallowed up by                                                    
the mouth of                                                                                                   
the seas and             
                                                   submerged then,          

mother earth buried                                                                                        
the sun and the                                                                                                    
man in the moon,
dirt-soiled raindrops,
boulder clouds,
jagged-leafed flower
fish stars,  
while I light-yeared                                                                                                    
                                                        along in all of this                          
strapped to my                                                                                                 
time roller-coaster                                                                                                                     
                                                    rocket car seat,

travelling on a tornado                                                                                                              
                                                     circles’ road of        
constellations and planets 
bound together by
God's Divine  Simplicity.

But now Big Ben chimes,
the shrill tea kettle boils,
barking dogs to feed,                                                                                 
and my rattling car's      
                                                  around the shop for repairs.

And now                                       
so hard                                                                              
to find.
