Spanda

Spanda is a Sanskrit term – derived from the root spadi: “to move a little” (kimcit calana) – for the subtle creative pulse of the universe as it manifests into the dynamism of living form. Spanda.org

My charm
bracelet
from childhood
clasps
with a snug fit
completing the circuit.
The polar bear
jiggles
bumping the tarnished seal,
the talismans tinkling,
an imprint
of my mother’s laughter.
