Oh gift, pulsing outward, into every cry seeking
The returning sorrow. Each discard leaves
Glimmers of light, but shadows fall
Upon myriad aversions. Alone feeling.
Nimbus tear-drowned, but breath burns,
Unquenched. Heart overflowing, emptiness
Downward rolls, bellows lock, dregs coughed
And life rushes into the breach.
No knowledge preparing, good or ill.
Ownership offending, bounding liberty,
Reason overthrown, upending faith.
Love’s solitude in truth uniting.
Truth beyond grasp, but compassion
Compelling, dissolving awareness, twining
Marionette thought in spirit free. Dancing
Freedom into bonds inescapable.
Not I, but multitudinous we.
