Speaking of Obligations....(4)

A speck of dust dreaming the cosmos.
One leaf, singing all the forests of the earth.

A photon, carrying incandescence from
the first great shattering light.

My brain,
with all of it’s billions
of possible connections still, still

still overcome by the night.

(4th in a series on the Long Obligatory Prayer.)
