i appear in sea, in wind, in soil, in starlight. in the sun i appear. i appear in mountains and desert rain. i am the star and i am the stone. i am bird and fish, sky and sea. one and whole eternally, i come, differentiating, multiplying, refracting like a ray of light through ten thousand water-droplet prism pearls suspended in earth’s highest sphere. shining i come, to touch the surface of this matter world in a splashing, multicolored chorus of light men and light women, created to bring beauty, love, order and grace to this sacred dance of atomic form.
