Paw Of The Universe

Not for myself

I labor,

But the paw of the universe



Tracked by winter white

Tiger

Hunched snarling,



Sudden.



Cloves of galaxies

Between its claws

Strewn as it pads



Knowing its way.

Globes of light

Pierce the night



Fiery. Sudden

It leaps.

Free, it becomes



Its full self.
