Simply to Be
In motion, I do not move alone.
All responds, shifting position
As I shift mine. A step
Changes the room, the house.
Nothing's as it was before. Angles
Alter, doors relocate. Unsuspected,
I am a force. All vectors
Meet in me. Earth's center feels
My footsoles. Hand on knob,
I'm born again, opening
To undiscovered kingdoms,
Each instant an act of wizardry.
Eternity sidles up to me. Oceans
Send waves in my direction, stars
Their light, their sparkles. I move,
The floor follows, pictures on a wall.
Walking in streets, skyscrapers
Sway dizzily above—thousands
Of windows moving as I go.
I stir and the stars stir. Creation
Cannot elude me. Simply to be
Reaches far as reach itself.
