The Heart of the Veiled Universe Yearns for You

The heart of the veiled universe yearns for you:

full moon on a densely clouded night

wind-blown seed nestled in frozen soil

an infant’s sigh after midnight feeding


and yet

attention lies elsewhere


you remain uninterested

in the fragility at the center of all things

with limitless inclusion,


the security of known illusion


still the gentle wind whispers:

it does not have to be so heavy

the weight of what you think you are



release and abandon

your firmly rooted explanations


float freely

like a wispy white dandelion seed


for you are the seed

open air

fertile earth

sunshine, rain, leaf and flower


the infinite love in everything

waits eternally for your arrival
