The internal cohesion of cosmos
is love, filling spaces between leaves
to carry songs of birds in alchemy
that replicates within oneself
the vinculum, bonding links
the sum of light of Eros, influence
of the Nazarene, shining from pores
saturated by unifying sense
or rubric to introduce logic of structure
relations between semantics and syntax
patterns, pretext of order and meaning
the greenness of spring or leafless boughs
of winter we live, occupying daily narrative
context of passions and romance
divine coherence, our cosmic inheritance
