What hollow world lies hidden?


What hollow world lies hidden

Within these solid forms,

Inviting me with eyes and mind to follow?

How would I live as leaf or twig

Or fruit as berry: thorn, if scorned?

A solitary round of life unknown but found.

Where would I find myself if self

Surrendered to this leave of flesh

To be enmeshed in natural and abiding weave?

Now hear the silent laughter’s peels

Through unknown trails, when green heart’s

Mischief ends in spoken soft enfolding:

‘We have never been apart’ –

The sweet and holding tones of One whose care

Has, selfless, furnished all my breathing.
