Mighty Suns

author's note:

The flower above spoke to me...

It said: "Hey you--yeah you, knucklehead!  Down here!"


I came to this mountain
to find the almighty Sky God

hoping he might have lowered
down in the clouds surrounding
the peak...

but I became lost in the wet gray fog--
tired, disillusioned, I lowered
my eyes down to the ground

and there discovered
the flowers...

all their small faces: mighty suns.
