Christmas morning

Christmas morning above the timberline -
where nature imitates awareness -
everything sparkles -
where the molecules of humidity freeze mid-air,
suspended in silence (they call it 'ice-crystals'),
scintillating space,
and every twig shimmers,
as pure consciousness illuminates things from within.
In pristine non-directional dawn,
the continuous revelation -
omnipenetration, - or simply This.
