The Silence Is All

The essence--
   The purpose--
      The paradox
      of life

is
NOTHING
simply
n o t h i n g

Eternal time is a soundless sea
   and
Love is
   the shifting
   crystalline
   universe
between our toes.

Our eyes
   unite infinities.
   consummate
   perfections.

We rule
   absolutely
      in the kingdom
         of our world...

A blanket
   on a chilly spring day
      of an early sun

Gently lying together
   with our toes in the sand

Simply being.
