shiva dances
with fractal serpent arms
coiled around perfect circles
and golden rectangles

and dionysus prances
on wandering goat feet
stepping to the shimmering beat
of star-twinkle pulses

gods and muses
arc from sky to earth
and earth to sky
in thought-bodies

while through everything
a thin breeze blows
and also does not blow.
