prakriti

spiritual being
wonderful soul
what are you made of?
what’s in your bowl?
is it fire and water?
is that your pair?
or water and earth?
or space and air?
what blend of nature
can you claim?
what is your substance?
what is your name?

in between

spark of sunrise
widening eyes
lemon-brightened
calm and deep
not yet drenched
in recollection
of life before my sleep.
