The birds and I
— together —
know the wonder of shiny glass;
the reflection of light glinting,
a glimpse of Godness.
I am those reflections
- sunlight on water -
a thousand thousand fragments of my Self.
The essence of me is light.
I have seen it shining:
in the Sun and stars, reflected by the Moon.
I collect it in sequins, glitter, and metallic gold.
Like a child. Or a bird…
…collecting bits of the God —
to remind me of my divinity.
