beyond transition

with or
without the voice
of a god––
we know the
ground is
sacred
& remove our
shoes

when the light
is holy––
we know & the
camera knows––

the photograph
illuminates it
self

how much love
does it take
to hold the atoms
together
in the crystal of
a diamond?

or does the
crystal of a
diamond eternally
generate
love?

if there are no
eyes to see them––
there are no
stars

if eyes are not
focused in a
mind, nothing
cares

your mind is
filled with the
light of billions of
stars & you
care

when you
smile at the
sky––
planets
warm

your consciousness
embraces all that
lives––
all that
is

our dust
nurtures our
spirits

the heart breathes
by opening––
the mind thinks
by opening––
the body finds
freedom by
opening

open-ness is
continuous, contiguous
& timeless––
the gathering of
infinities of
infinities

here we are
in the blue
chasms between the
clouds

happy to be
touching––
lighter than
air
