Overt Symmetry

peach, kernel, basketball,
sphere, wheel,
world, soul, atom,
gene -

All is turn and edge
And manifest,
In-cored to
Pledge of girth and dream,
The mind-seam
Distinguishing the
In everything.

Nothing covert here.
Nothing hidden.

All is 
Arrayed for us -
And planned - 
To name the names
And thereby 
See the correspondences 
Displayed and obvious:

Peach.  Kernel.  Basketball.
Sphere.  Wheel.
World.  Soul.
Atom.  Gene.

See the form as you are
Bidden.  And
