i and you

you sit there
five feet away
sipping your coffee
and i sit here, quietly

your eyes, when you let them
reveal another world
the world of the spirit
where you are not in this house
but in the whole universe

the universe fills you
fire, water, air, earth
the flux of elements
appears in your eyes
opening to the other world
where love is
where death is

i meet you in that world
and burn in your fire
the old burns away
the new emerges
immense, awake, infinite

you and i
i and you
the bodies are quiet
and the universe is aflame
in us
