I have climbed the Hill Of Energy
I have built each molecule from the sun.
Been fruitful from fruits,
Been drunk from the vine,
Sung with lungs filled with the flow of the jet stream
Struggled and stumbled in the sun
Coasted on cloudy days
Showered in the rain
The gift of sunshine and the grace of stored sunshine
Has built my bones,
Sculpted my skin,
Thrust my teeth through gums
And lengthened my legs.
Now I offer each cell of this body
To fuel some part of its universe.
My blossoms are paper and pencil.
My ideas drift like seeds between our minds;
Plant them and watch them grow.
These books are gleanings from the harvest of past souls.
This skein of skin has tasted the juice of sunshine.
Each flake of skin that nourishes a cockroach,
Each hair that drifts to nest a mouse,
Moves in dissolution to indissoluble energy of the universe.
