A View Vast

By Tony DeLorger © 2011


Each step, each breath

is profound,

for within them

the opportunity,

to understand.

Life’s puzzle is complex,

and it leads to more puzzles,

each more vast in scope,

like the roots of a tree,

they fan out

to distant truths,

realisations

undiscovered.

I cringe under its weight,

take flight within its freedom,

and rest within its serenity.

Finally, I have surrendered

to its beguiling whisper,

its incessant pulling.

I now rest,

surrounded by its slender,

its confusion,

its illumination.

I am but a sponge for it,

a receptacle

to absorb truth,

to acknowledge the power of it,

but remain unmoved.

Life swallows me up,

empowers me

and lays me to waste.

I am but human,

a spec of the infinite,

an expression

within an expression.

Enlightenment

is a burden I must.

I have become a dichotomy,

a mind removed from body,

a body removed from purpose.

The flow increases,

and I within its stream,

make peace.

      "like the roots of a tree,

      they fan out

      to distant truths," I like the image that paints in my head.
