There is an unremembered instant,

wherein a secret vow was made:

Pursue not that which lies beyond appearances.

Macroscopic  phenomenon: that seen by the naked eye;

Scaled down to its highest level of magnification,

span distances the size of the known universe.

Fantastic though these sights may be;

No degree of magnification, much less the naked eye

reveals what is here spoken of.

What is this way of seeing you

my body’s eyes see not,-- yet surely there to see?

And by what means is it revealed?

Upon my tranquil mind, in a quiet state of peace,

The ineffable


Symbols of separation, for an instant, fade from view.

And from this timeless place,

where nowhere and everywhere meet,

we are forever joined:

In Love
