ZERO TO ONE
(1/1/06)


reality exists
between zero
and one

zero
the obvious
and
certainly
there can be
only one

all the derivations
and numerical
contrivances
above
or below
matter not
they are but numbers
and expressions
of man
the reflections
of our insecurities
and discomforts
to seemingly
being alone
in the
nothingness

the infinity
of existence
between zero and one
encompasses all
that we know
coloring our experiences
with a divine
absolute

we are created
by the one
out of nothing
to serve
our time
between the extremes
where no time exists
but that which
we create

we make
our lives
in a limitless realm
unbounded without
but centered
within

we persistantly
move away
from a part of ourselves
that permanently remains
firmly rooted
in the bedrock
of spiritual
birth

knowing
that connection
always exists
is the only
security
and comfort
that any of us
can attain
no matter
how far
we may wander
from our
source

we pray
for a time
when that simple truth
will be enough
for each one
of us
and all
that we need
to make it
through
another
day
