A Shared World

Updated: May 13


When attention turns to itself

there is no tension and there is no self

There is an observation of a hand

and a pen, and a poem’s creation


There are forces in perpetual motion

giving birth to thousands of worlds

many of them with no sense of ground

composed of sounds and words

an immaterial fabric on the material plane

There is infinite space to be

in this endless search for meaning

Constantly asking myself how to become free

Where is my end and our beginning?

We have always existed together

with no reason for it

and with the millions of reasons

that appear in every moment

For the sake of connection with you

I am here
