The thing @poseofpower

Topic - Spirituality


I’ll tell you what’s been keeping me alive

the thing we cannot name

the thing we can’t explain

an entity there, floating always

in us around us through us

in skin and bone

in hidden places

and in full color, large print

stored in trunks

heard in magic

echoes through the mountains

knows well our ancestors

in butterflies’ wings

in hurricanes

at the beginning of the first heartbeat

and every one after that

and even after the last

in freehand filigree

in tooled precision

in the judgment of the difference

in the verdict and answer

in the discerning

in the voice and the ears

saturates us like water in a sponge

breathing water that is what we are

and the wonder too of stars

and the take away

and the addition

in rights and wrongs

in trials and tragedies

in celebrations.
