Without End

After midnight, no one will hear
the subtle sighs of my lover as she
leaves my bed to wander, moon-like,
through lit clouds, wreathed in the
perfume of transience, soaring
away in the dream time.

At the pond,
not a ripple will stir.

On her way,
perhaps she’ll stop
to tend the fire, roasting
cinders of wry intelligibility
with unconcealed delight as words,
names, and forms that rose from nowhere
curl back again like smoke from where they came.

When we meet again in our glad embrace
there’ll be no place where Love
leaves off and something
less slinks in.

In light and shadow, twining, mindless,
blissful sighs of “Yes, Yes, Yes” welcome
us to the fragrant jasmine petal heart of this
moment, drenched in that deathlessness,
ruby glimmer in green floating worlds,
white flowering worlds, all spiraling
blessing, both given and taken,
empty and full, all life
without end –

Amen.

    Thank you for your reply! :)

    But what about worldly concerns etc, surely it is not possible eg. if one needs to put food on the table? (Example)

    Thank you again for your contributions. :)

      Sure, when it’s time to eat, we eat. Eating does not have to obstruct our peace, any more than our other daily activities, our work, etc. It begins with the inner discipline of silence, and is supported by the practice of non-dwelling.

      Blessings!
