Life coming together...

An opening in space as the voice of self calls in the distance like a genie in a bottle,

Begging and whispering for the stillness to prevail,

Sighing at every loss in the moment of a transparent story,

And smiling when home is present or not.


An old clock begins to miss its beat,

As the chirping bird never misses hers,

A call into the darkness where all reflection of light is given,

As the shadows play with form.


One simple song for all,

With a million threads all singing,

Then falling back and back again,

Into trueness and peace.


Vastness in an open door ,

Fear and excitement at stepping through,

Only to see a lone gatekeeper,

Welcoming all with open arms.


Searching and fumbling,

For a space in time,

Which can’t be found,

Shhh, don’t make a sound.
