Stretching Muscles of Light

You feel a sexual shiver-

an abrasion of shock and delight

as your mind pulls your spine

up into vision like a rainbow.

You have just stretched a muscle of light

and like the arc of a waterfall

you can fly measurelessly

into stillness.

You can reach inwards now

to touch the purple flower,

the trembling stigma

of the Goddess

or you can plunge

like a spear of ecstasy

through the roof

of your heart.
