It’s Monday

I’m in love with this tree outside my window
because he or she makes me love where I am right now

The sun has not yet risen

It’s rising

The branches at my 3rd eye
bend poetically together, upward to create the Vaishnava tilaka

The quantum effect between my brain cells reminds me
that I remember this pattern

of upward, of love, of energy, of a dance

and I do.
