  • A moment of happiness
    you and I sitting on the verandah,
    apparently two, but one in soul, you and I.
    The parrots of heaven will be cracking sugar
    as we laugh together, you and I.
    In one form upon this earth,
    and in another form in a timeless sweet land.


    We are
    one soul
    in two bodies,
    at once different
    and the same.

    We are
    and moonlight,
    and rocky shore.

    We are not love
    though we live
    in Love,
    and Love
    lives through us.

    We are sand
    and starfish,
    and coral reefs,
    inlet and Orca.

    We are
    sunken ships
    and hidden treasure.
    We are cathedral
    and labyrinth.

    We are
    neither cloud
    nor sky
    neither music
    nor flute,

    Neither storm
    nor sunshine
    neither paint
    nor canvas,
    perfect emptiness,

    Neither breath
    nor breathing
    neither garden
    nor fountain:
    We transcend duality.

    we are everything
    and nothing,
    whispers and silence,
    ecstasy and peace.

    We are beyond
    finite distinctions,
    We are
    both song
    and echo.

    This universe
    we create
    together, cannot
    be described
    in words,

    though we know,
    oh yes,
    we know,
    we are
    a holy Secret,

    A holy secret
    called Oneness.
