The Eye of the Hurricane


by David Scheler

In the eye
of the hurricane,
a cool magnetic air, the pneuma
blows between electrons
and the nucleus—

through the corpus
and the spirit,
flows in spiral spectrum.

There is only bliss
in this encapsulated somnolence.
The quiet static peace
is endless—

perhaps it reeks of heaven
after being there
just a little too long.
