In a glance that doesn’t even brush past me
Travelling all charged up
And at a speed that only dreams can dream of

A bit in a byte and a byte in a bit
Going from one end of a thought to the other
And not coming any nearer to the truth

A pixel in a smile that remains frozen
For eternity or at least until
The photograph doesn’t crash out of its optical drive!

I am a scintilla in a conflagration, a decibel in an orchestra
And also a raging fire in a spark
Or an entire orchestra inside a mere decibel!

And so is it with you. We are all
Together inside everything
We are the silence of space and the music of the universe!

I am in everything

I am in everything
