duality past the smallest element
separates mind and body,
but unity sees no difference;
energy and awareness are the same.
pieces merge to make a moment
here and gone, no reason to last
this firing of several cells, are they
just the bright dot in our field of view?
is this electricity by itself
awareness, and we its sum?
broad wall of sound, is hearing
moth wing beating muscle and nerve
alone? still, what do we know
immersed in light and well of silence?
energy awareness moves
in air, on ground, through water.
rock, fence, apple
sing in place.
mind open to spirit
universe above, below
travel one foot here
through lifespan’s veil.
