One Thread

What threads the hollow
of each moment?
Passes through the heart
of stars, joining
galaxies like blossoms
in a garland,
stringing sun and moon
to earth's unspinning core?
One thread binds all -
the pearl in your navel
to the emerald in your chest
to the diamond in your crown,
finer than dew-silk
yet brighter than a bolt
of summer lightning.
Through one thread
hums the silent echo
of the lion's roar
at the moment of creation.
This is why, when you whirl,
you feel the stillness
of the heavens in your body.
With one thread,
one breath, friend,
you have connected
