That Immanence Thing – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

“I like the sea: we understand one another. It is always yearning, sighing for something it cannot have; and so am I.” Greta Gabo

That Immanence Thing

All at once the world came in,
I felt it,
the bird's feathers touched my soul,
it offered such a sublime, electric song
which made me tremble and 
surrender my fragile breath
in a ripe sigh,
for the idea of the thing,
an unknown held
as a jealous secret,
now echoing through my body
like rich magenta solace
gently brushed in generous strokes.
