I gaze into the vacant eye of infinity

Formless endless space
Swallows all

The mote that is me
Floats . . . wanders . . .
A speck among many
Randomly floating in the sea of reality

Strong breezes blow
Currents of time flow around and through me
Carrying energy.  Life.  Truth.
Questions hang in the air

Mystery . . . mystery . . .
Embrace the mystery 

I gaze into the vacant eye of infinity
Lost in the depths.
A lepton forgotten . . . misplaced . . .
What flavor am I?

Love matters.
A kind touch
Tender kiss on the cheek
Here and now

Not in eternity.
Not in vacant space.
Too vast to care

Play the games
Fit in
Join the crowds
Walk in death.
In life that is not life
Empty energy.

Walk alone
Be alone

We are all alone
We are all connected
Tendrils of life
Soul to soul
Heart to heart

This is all there is
Life recognizing life
Love recognizing love

Love never stops
Love never leaves
The island in the sea
Solid ground
For the mote that is me

Listen to Your Rhythms

There is a right time for each of the things you do.

If you try to live counter to your personal rhythms, 
you will expend more time and energy to get things done. 

Body and soul suffer 
when you force yourself 
to wrestle against your own flow. 

Listen to your rhythms . . .  follow them . . . 

 and Beauty will follow . . .

Shimmering Darkness

Some days the darkness hangs heavy in my chest
Pervading  . . . seeping into all aspects of self
Thoughts are muddled and energy draining
I slog through sadness
Each step a triumph of will

My soul searches for relief
Finding it 
In the offering of kindness . . .
In the recognition of shared humanity

I look into the eyes of another . . . and smile
I speak friendly or funny words
My bit of spark is received and reflected back to me

Like a shimmery thread of energy
This golden tendril reaches deep within
To my Source
I am briefly connected to another
We have exchanged bits of life

In my darkness there is light
Pain and goodness coexist
Suffering infused with joy
Joy bearing the burden of suffering

Meaning resides
In this place
Of shimmering darkness

How sweet
The ability to speak
And smile
Through the weight
To know
In some small way
I loved another
