Gaze at the sun setting in the Pacific.
Reflected on wet sand below.
Like a lotus in the mirrored pond.
Such beauty deserves to be twinned.
So it is with water
that holds Nature’s reflection,
Like the sun meeting itself
as it dissolves into night.
Sunsets know the place of union,
where what is gazed upon
and what is real
The way the lotus sees its beauty
in the murky pond.
The stars see themselves
in stilled waves.
The Divine sees itself
in us All.
as the sun meets itself in the ocean
slipping into night.
