the universe pours into us

in the centre of this body
is the heart
in the centre of the heart
is the soul
in the centre of the soul
are the stars

when the day rises
and the sun shines
and the world awakens
the universe pours into the soul
stretching it far and wide
to hold
its immutable light
its unending energy

when the night falls
the soul collects itself
and flies out
and expands
into the vast, silent universe
to reach its farthest stars
to burn in its brightest fires

the fire of the day
the waters of the night
the power of action
the pull of contemplation
the joy of giving
the depth of receiving
they are
the rhythms of the soul
the rhythms of the universe
