Darkness surrounds us
buried in the mind of materiality
closed from the spirit
in the interest of individuality.

I
I am
again and again
darkness to light
night to day
dreams to reality
spun in space and time
swirled within the universe.

The spiritual Sun
joined to us now
in the blood
pulsing life
spiritual and physical
filling us with
purpose, determination, and will
as the reason, the aim, and our destiny
in existence.

The spiritual Moon
separated for purpose
reflected in the Sun
light and life
penetrating to shadow
through change.

Each globe in
constant change
performing a purpose
in life
spiritual and physical
nothing created
nothing given life
nothing in existence
not in the plan.

Moving and changing
weaving and waving
vibrating and expanding
in and out
as holy breath
growing larger in time
to life.

Age by age
generation by generation
life expands
in and out
as a body breathing
life in and death out
and nature breathing
death in and life out
as holy breath.

Life is mystery and love
wisdom and pain
hidden and open
full and rich
and you can often be seen
partaking and sharing
in life’s mystery and fullness
as you sit together with the universe
alone under the bodhi tree.

Very deep - must be read more than once. I could've sworn I heard zither music in the background...

The breathing image in this thought provoking free verse poem is striking and very creative!

Very deep thoughts. The last stanza was easier for me to understand, not being a planet person perhaps.
