Welcome vast slow-burning chemistry of stars!
Welcome sunlight galvanized by thermal waves!     
Welcome comets a-blaze for 1,000,000 miles!
Welcome lightning connecting earth & sky!
Welcome raindrops strung on fence wire!
Welcome gold rings in a bittern’s eyes!
Welcome iridescence of raven wing!
Welcome emerald fire from moss!
Welcome silvery flakes of mica!
Welcome silica glint in sand!
Welcome electron orbiting!
Welcome eyes gleaming!
 
Roar mountains with
praise for your ancient rivers
that begin here & find their way down to
the Gulf of Mexico … rave on shining water
& welcome the flame that resides within
& flows through all things ...
rave on!
