Day Unites the Self

Immersed with a morning meditation.
swirling in the midst of cheerful society,
surrounds a soul breeding new loneliness.
Quaking transposed heart murmurs
to the open spectral chest exposed
blessing the sensuous self.
Conforming to the normalizing demands.
we find a man merely existing,
joining frozen shadows of the living.
