Al-Muhyi: The Quickener

Have you felt your pulse leap
when a find yourself face to face
with beauty?
with the way a section of rainbow
can hover in goose-gray clouds,
flaring brilliant, just a quarter arch,
but still, with that upwards glance,
suddenly even pot-holed pavement
There was not cup of coffee at your elbow,
no rock music thumping your first chakra awake—
the noticing, the relationship between you and
light and raindrops
only reminded you
of the awareness that enlivens
the curve of the clam shell and
this curve of your smile
in the rear-view mirror.
