It’s all very mysterious
how things work inside molecules,
the clusters of grapes and cherries
surrounding an unseen core.
Whether hidden bonds elongate or contract,
whither severing or uniting,
-with sounds of conception and formation-
there must be rules governing
their creation and future collaborations.
Or they could be tenets of faith,
-just like when
daffodils lean into the sunlight,
lovers linger in a first kiss,
or songs echo in cathedral rafters.
