Sonnet: Love's Overflowing Love

By John Kendall Hawkins
.

When God popped his cork and let the tiny

bubbles of his frenzied celebration

overflow (He may even have shaken

the bottle, as Gods do), each a shiny

champagne universe, He poured galaxies

into wedding flutes, and it took its toll:

abstract First Love spiraled out of control,

giving birth to specific gravities.

Our free-flowing universe, alike, but

unalike -- snowflakes dressed as falling stars,

waltzing windblown blizzards. I've since known bars,

seen such stuff in eyes, and behind eyes shut.
