A moment

Tai Chi under the stars.
Tonight I felt the universe as close and intimate as my own pulse.
Thrumming through my veins
I felt the fire of the stars and the cold of the void
And rejected nothing.
The wind blew through me as my atoms danced apart
An endless loop of grasping sparrow's tail
I left the gossip and the worries behind
Shadow boxing beneath the stars
Health evaporated
Opponents vanished.
Heaven above
Earth below
Body empty and filled with glorious space.
The ocean rolled
The Palace beamed
Silence in the cave
The only prayer left was
I love you.
