Celestial Metamorphosis

Abbott Small

The Light pulls me
until I fly:
I am a flame
in the Holy Dove's eye.

The butterfly, the stork,
the dragonfly, nearby,
are each
a separate total sky.

Over Elysian fields
they weave and fly,
shapes in clouds
to the unchanged eye.

The Spirit, knowing me,
knows why.
