Wading into the honey
An ancient life — thick
Like a warm blanket
I bathe in the solar crystals
That dance in my eyes

A palpable emergence
As I submerge
Deeper and deeper in
Until my eyes, covered

In empty space, there is more to see
Infinite realities unfolding forever and ever
And ever, until I am not

Something in me must die away
I feel the shapes moving —
Through, then beyond me
I let her wash over my being
And take whatever she needs
