This universe is a river

This universe is a river
I am a cup.

Empty
I am full of trust.

Full
I am empty of desire.

Owl medicine carries me high
Deep
Into a mystery
Few vessels could
Contain.

This expansion;
Every cell vibrates
A self contained galaxy

A watering hole so wide
All who attempt escape
Drown
In struggle.

To receive all
This
The clay cistern is planted firmly
In the ground.

It never asks,
“Do I deserve?”
