immersion

secretly you hold the cosmos
as if
it were a newborn child–
you are
overwhelmed by the sheer magnitude the latitude the longitude–
seamless
in its capacity to expand and carry
your bones
inside your body at the intersection of all dark,
all light

The prompt for NaPoWriMo Day 11 is to write a poem about a very large thing. I’ve used the waltmarie form with the subject of healing, prompt 12 from Muri’s April Scavenger hunt. I love the way this form illuminates itself with its interior verse.
