  • Unfurl yourself,
    With the motion of the clouds.

    Look up and feel the dance,
    Sail with the dancers through the sky,

    Part of that same expanse,
    As your heart,

    If you would but know it.

    Growing and blooming,
    Curling and wheeling,
    Stretching and thinning,
    And disappearing, before your eyes,

    As you smile,
    And open your countenance,
    Like a flower.
