A sudden turn,
the world transforms into another form.
Your morning cape slips from your shoulders
like a bird shedding her feathers.
Cast aside, you greet
the hollow silence within hollow silence
the loneliness among loneliness
When diaphanous skin breaks, you gaze at
a thousand emerald hills abruptly surging,
a flood of fragrance, birds singing, a breeze
In the distance, lavish green and endless green.
You pose within, silk brocade in your palms
Watching a thousand waves roll
holding the morning sun
that with a clench and a release seem to
send out a whole new world
