Sky meets horizon

and reflects in the still water

two suns, two sets of drifting cloud

white to yellow, then red to purple and blue

doubled, radiating above and below

Let us enter the boat

and drift across the sea

surrounded by colour and light

until we do not know

whether we sail the water or the sky

Perhaps we journey

in the sun-god’s craft

plying the heavens

all that is earthly under our feet

Perhaps we can lower our hand over the side

and feel, not liquid, but living light

and scoop it in our palms

and drink the fiery water

of creation
