The Sound That Makes Love

Within the sea of pure potentiality,
the ocean of consciousness, an energetic resonance
precipitates movement, spawning waves and ripples
which intersect and mingle, rise and fall.

This one dynamic impulse reverberates within itself,
birthing the totality of universal manifestation
through the play of complex living forces
initiated by its vibration.

Without beginning, this unspeakable power
manifests in increasingly differentiated levels,
with each successive layer contained
within its more subtle predecessor.

When the life-energy moves out and down
into the more solid dimensions,
desire is born.

Thus it was that you appeared here,
even in this far outpost of materiality,
with the unquenchable desire to be and to know,
to know yourself as two, as four, as many
as it takes to make a world,
your world.

At first unsure, but curious, you circle
around yourself as if you were an other,
so shyly at first, but wanting to touch,
to touch and be touched.

You want to feel it all,
all of yourself.

Yes, you came to see and be seen,
to hear and be heard, to make a world
out of your vibrating thought, the thought
that brought all of this into existence,
just so that you could love
and be loved.

All of the ensuing complication,
the infinitely alternating play of expansion
and contraction, of pursuit and retreat, is the play
of that love in time and space, the pulsing sound
brought down by love into this warm flesh
to shine its light in vast emptiness.
