To Each a Kingdom

Everyday mind moves
matter.  See the hand shade
the eye when thought
becomes too bright,

watch a dream repeat
itself in real life,

bodies of lovers
in arc, the movement
of the lips and mouth,

the furrowed brow
molding the actions
of a child,

a bowed head
mourning the loss
of life.

Rush now, kings
and queens of thought,
reach into the light, your hands
into the darkness,

mold your
lovely kingdoms.
