mystery

the mystery is meaning
or the lack of it––

a magic word for being,
certainty, hope, truth, goodness,
beauty, justice &
deathlessness

where do we go
when the noisy game ends?
when the stars go dark
& we seem to have
no friends?

if there ever was
anything to know––
we were
& we knew

we are souls––
the reality that casts
no shadows––
yet can stamp its
feet

a memory that
never forgets itself––

a spiral hiding
in a circle
until it laughs––

a second that
breathes out eons
as it silently ticks
its song

time has no where to go
so it’s never gone

the imagination
creates doors
that you open to
kingdoms without kings
& resonant choruses
of angels

openings
to more heartfulness
more light

the meaning of meaning is
freedom
