mystery upon mystery


a secret

opens up
every moment

a sweet, narrow little steam
flows from a crevice
afresh
anew
nourishing
with it flows a secret
every moment

in the centre of the heart
where all desires end
all noises cease to be
and darkness reigns
glows a secret flame
quietly flourishing
every moment

a bird sings
an eternal song
in the contours of her voice
in its rising and falling
and the pauses in between
intimate, heartfelt, free
a secret opens up
every moment

and when dusk gathers
the last birds fly home
sunlight softens
nature embraces us
in the warmth of her bosom
and all quietens
then too
a secret opens up
every moment

from these moments
life arises
mystery upon mystery
a darkness that glows bright
an emptiness fuller than all else

that is the only life there is
all else being death
spiritual death
waiting for the body to follow
