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,

preferring

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

 

exhale

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
