I'm the Crystal (And So Are You): A Poem for Cold Times

i'm the crystal
i'm the light
inextinguishable and bright
i put my heart forth
on the pavement of life
the ground of commons
the soil of source

i charge through darkness
for wherever i go
i recalibrate the field
transmuting absence into presence

divine fireworks on earth
my body my crystal my faith my guidance
a universe of color in an opal's prime

my life's my joy
my art my service my peace my love
