I have stepped into a holy universe
that makes my body hum
as every cell is bathed in love.
My mitochondria sing
as they melt the honey goodness into me.
What before would tax my teetering heart
can no longer touch it–
in one day, working full out
became easy as dreamless sleep.
This miracle is here to feed me
so I can nourish my team
to serve a hungry world
with no idea of its treasure
hidden beneath diamond sands
on every secret, whitened beach.
