Gaze at the sun setting in the Pacific
reflected, like a lotus
in the mirrored pond.
Such beauty deserves to be twinned.
So it is with water
that holds Nature’s reflection,
the way stars see their shimmering
in stilled waves below,
Sunsets know the place of union,
where what is being seen
and what is real
The way the lotus sees its beauty
in the murky pond.
The Divine sees itself
in us All.
as the sun meets itself in the ocean
slipping into night.
