A Fierce Power

I watch him stagger and grow
burst forward
drop down
with nimble-ing fingers clutch
at detritus
uncovered on his way

Turning to me -

his eureka moments devoured
like a Columbus or Polo -
awareness of possibilities with
each new touch -

he smiles

a wireless touch that
activates pulsing deep
within me
transfixing - driving me
through all barriers -
sleep - hunger - pain

he smiles cries out flaps his
arms trying to fly

A fierce power resides in these small conjurations
