I once flew out yonder, my heart bursting with joy,
straddling a comet’s tail; utterly lost, benighted…
Charging the blue expanse, starlight sparkling around me,
I heard heavenly chimes... my soul, unsure, delighted.
There followed violins, and harps of wandering minstrels,
and airs sang so sweetly (truly unearthly voices...)
Can angels trill such charm? Zeus’s favourite daughters?
Ephemeral yet real beauty…Truly Olympian choices.
And suddenly I realized that before time began,
among galactic clouds, spellbound—as in a fable,
amid the myriad diamonds salting cosmic expanse
the music was always playing…
…just so my heart could dance.
