I had a dream
that after winter's clenching grip
my window was finally freed open
and the faint song of a distant memory
and the perfume of stillness
spoke volumes to my soul.
While truth held me in sweet captivity
in my fleeting Twilight
rare moments of wonder of this life
bloomed into an eternal cycle of unfettered joy.
For what I saw was an ordinary fruit with a tough and
being cracked open through the non-essential surface
in order to arrive at the organic
core of life.
And when the hidden seeds from which issue the
essentials of eternity were
momentary pleasures of the flesh
an inconsolable void
quickly appeared upon reflection
only to gracefully reveal an inexpressible beauty.
see you in the morning
for in my waking hours
the only way to make each day different from all the
rest as I step into your world is:
"In the essentials, UNITY
in the non-essentials, LIBERTY
in ALL THINGS
