Always Around

that lovely old moon is always around
there is no such thing as beauty
unpolished undimmed true lover sweet friend
beauty is the only thing there is

There is something simply wondrous about resonance
Every sound creates a signature of resonance
And every word begins and ends with resonance
The soul of each created thing has resonance
If you truly stop and listen for its resonance
Echoing reverberating lively resonance
Incredible vibrating resilient resonance
The universe around us overflows with resonance
The silence of the cosmos yields enormous resonance
Deeper than the deepest wells of resonance
Every single truth we know proclaims its resonance
Every minute grain of sand consists of resonance
Every single star radiates in shining resonance
Every wave that finds the shore arrives in resonance
There is no heart that can contain the awe of resonance
Every act of kindness is a form of resonance
Every tear that falls is filled with resonance
The force within all living things is resonance
Clouds and flowers manifest pure resonance
I can only repeat my experience of resonance
Like a mantra uttered in unending resonance
I see you and you see me as sacred resonance
We are every one of us the image of God’s own resonance
The glorious never ending song of resonance
Repeating yes and yes and yes in unifying resonance
Blissful conscious all existing resonance

Yesterday I climbed the blue mountain
Today I wade the pure stream
I feel the heat of the dragon’s breath
I sing a song borrowed from the sparrow

the moon came knocking at the gate last night
I’m not used to visitors this far up the mountain
every morning I wipe star dust off my window sills
no one would believe me if I wrote this stuff down

All That’s Left

the dark wall is all that’s left
memories conflated into nothingness

the dark Self is all that’s left
ego compressed into nothingness

the dark eye is all that’s left
visions and perspectives reduced to nothingness

the dark moment is all that’s left
one breath follows another into nothingness

the dark note is all that’s left
one letter addressed from emptiness to nothingness

the dark drift is all that’s left
transcending into peaceful everlasting nothingness

the dark nothingness is all that’s left
transformed into the light of all beingness
