Lyric at 30,000 feet

                                                      -- For Saudamini

Each moment
Even the darkest
Hovers like a hologram
Before you

Circle slowly around its
Dazzle and sizzle
O befuddled one

Take its light
Its heat
In your hand
Like a candle

Put its sweetness
On your tongue
Like a lozenge

Dance with its beauty
Like a tireless lover

Give away its abundance
Like loaves fresh from the oven

Follow it
Like a school of glowing fishes
With a single mind
