‘Lazy Boy’ heats, vibrates too
At the end of a busy day.
Lulled by both, I drift a-nap
The Discovery Channel way.
Where a weaver bird
In elaborate dance
Builds a hanging gourd-shaped home.
But I’ve seen this bird do this before,
Same result, same dance, same drone.
A million birds have felt this urge
And ritualized the actions.
I wonder if these birds can weave
A time and space contraction?
Collapsing cosmos is quite a trick
And would seem a strange solution;
To a bird’s nest conundrum connecting steps
Into an arrow flight evolution.
If persistent action amplifies
And extends through repetition;
Vibrations attract harmonically
Can they solidify location?
My mind slips into delta,
Where I sew a vibrant line;
A weaver knotting a nested muse
With a harmonic stitch in time.
