what we are

December 1, 2011 § 6 Comments

we are all essential ingredients—
radiant sons and moons and daughters of stars
ripples from a stone dropped in a body of water
holy parts
effects upon one another immeasurable
attempts to avoid make it more inevitable
it becomes that we shall meet one another
we are descendants of destined matters of fact or fiction intermingled with
spirits and mind over matter or matter over mind somewhere buried under the rubble of it all

we are guests in  these bodies
ghosts in shells
hosts awaiting awakening

are we bandits who made off with these secrets squandered for trifling gains–
and have given little in return???
we are grains of sand slipping through the fingers of the hands of time.
