a precious stone
wet…

blue green...

a single planet spins its stories
arcing through
this
trackless
space
wherein
all worlds
are born...

and die…

circling
round some molten core…

that scale
time’s
ancient order
in their cycles…

numberless orbs
ejecting
shattered splinters
of dioptric light
that shear
the dark
and radiate the eons…

until at last…
within obsidian night
they coalesce
to form
a canopy
of jewels…

faint
shimmering
points
hidden from each downcast eye
until…
by grace…
a man lifts heavenward
his gaze
to see
in stricken
awe
such beauty
measured out beyond the compass
of
his
mind…



yet
all these wonders
that pass before
the sight
of man
and are but a
burst of brilliance…
refracted
from
a facet
of this…
most precious gem…
suspended
in the
void…
of
consciousness…

this single eye
that headless sees
all life
as the image of
omniscience…

whose ear
alone
resounds…
to the chorus
of each creatures cry
and the music of
the
dance…


inhaling
scent of sacrifice…

of those who suffer…

savouring
too…

their
joy

glowing
with heat of passion
enfolded
in the
womb
of
the
Beloved…

Love

you too jeff...

have you noticed that whenever it appears that you are reading someone else... the appearance is then who you seem to be...

that in the moment: "jeff reading michael"... 'is' "jeff"...

that there is no separation at all...

Love

just before sunrise Laughing
