we must dance

we must dance amid these broken leaves of light
cradle the sun in our bosom, the stars in our eyes
no trace of the empty Word found here –
no, only the spurs of life in counterpoint
the urging of the lion’s beating heart
unrelenting cascade of truth

now in this cool autumn breeze
i am my own attempt at myself
and surrounded by ethereal music
i pulse with the pulsing of leaves,
   sap, air, light
this telluric pace destroying transient illusion

the only thought left standing:
  i am the meeting of light condensed
    and love expanded

my nerves are but the cradle of truth
my heart the birth of compassion
my gut the embryo of freedom

sit with me now, let me take your hand
feel the experiment of your pulse
and begin again this dance
