I found the dragonfly, concealed high upon a juniper branch, or was it Tree of Heaven, she told me to always look beyond external form.
I communed with the great stick bug shaman high atop lookout late into the falling season. He told me to watch closely, remain devoted to my task.
I once met a spider and told him that I admired his geometry and his agility.
He thanked me by exploring every inch of a sculpture model I built.
He followed me to a meeting a week later and told me to keep going.
Soon after I met a cicada, just emerging from her late spring slumber,
she let me watch her unfurl her wings,
they were dark matter knit together with sky ropes,
little starlit crystal tubes and passageways & smoky veils.
She showed me that my seeds are sprouting.
She showed me starfire and moonbeam.
I have heard Metatron calling.
I have seen the power shining.
I have heard the world spinning.
I have beheld the fury of it all.
