How little did I know

The Eye of you and me

is watching carefully...

from beyond the city lights,

my every move

my clumsy efforts

to operate this awkward space suit

to mingle with the rest

in this peculiar custom dance.


How little did I know

the Heart of you and me

could never be broken!...

maintaining rhythmic touch

with the beating drum

of our ancient memory...


I felt your breath behind my neck

but I was too afraid to turn around

and face the nothingness of our gap


Perhaps I was afraid of something else...?


How little did I know

the Soul of you and me

is drinking the nectar of our dreams...

from beyond the midnight sky...

weaving streams of understanding

fusing polar ends

to undivided flow...

leading me so surely

to my final test!...


How little did I know

the Spirit of you and me

is the alchemist of our experiment...

metamorphosing light and darkness

in the laboratory of time

dancing with the mind-bender...!

warping space

into isolated gardens

where tiny shreds, of you and me

are growing into flowers

comfort, for the lost!

striving towards the sunlight

recycled into dust.


I heard your voice behind my chest

but I was too afraid to close my eyes

so I don’t miss the turn.


Perhaps I was afraid of something else...?!


How little did I know

the Now of you and me

is the invisible spine

between first cause and last effect...


polished by free will

my drill is sharper

then the drooling teeth

of the monger beast!

penetrating the layers

of accumulated old files

through moldy piled up indoctrinations

of lonely histories


Wiping the record clean

Blank Slate


I open my eyes inwardly

suspended in the pure silence

of our transparent being...

you are still watching me...

your gaze is stripping me naked

exposing me to my core!

We are looking at oneself...!


In the gravity of truth

we vanish into our open arms

transforming absence

into Presence...


In the heart of the unknown

we are regathered...!

watching the rising void

shining in a new brilliance...


Making yet

Another...

One of us

Known...!
