Entering the Gap


So it is that we are here for a reason

this journey we all share

is not to search for, no grail to pursue,

no hidden agenda, no secrets to unveil,

nor need we sacrifice a single breath of wanting

other than who we are

in this a haunting life of doing and being


I am the reason, as you are too – one by one

we come and go, never really letting go


I am consciousness defined

in an image so inclined to repeat itself

turning over and over and over again

in fertile soil, folding and folding again

the flesh and bone that gives seed to thought

in a never ending cycle of bloom and spoil


and so it is

we are here to make a difference

in some small or gargantuan way,

tripping over the illusion

of time consumed by a moment in time

to come to the only conclusion


I am here to witness the silent, the subtle,

the essence of reality.
