Early Light

8 May

Against the blackness of early
morning my reflection in the
glass patio door is multiplied,
an optical delusion.  Two of
me returns my gaze.  Which
is me?  I overlap myself.

My hope for this day is
an awareness of a sacred
singularity that celebrates
difference, yet joins all things,
all beings, in the reality of
The One.

I hope for faith grounded
in wisdom, trust and
kindness…harmony of thought
and will as the result of the
peaceful union of divergent
voices…and peace replacing
the taste of greed and violence
in our mouths.

Faint light peeks shyly around
the partially drawn curtain.  Morning
is not far behind.  Slowly she moves
across the garden, climbs deep green
vines clinging to the stone wall, then
casts her smile on two sparrows
as they toss fresh water into
the air from the shallow
birdbath.

Early morning’s somber light suddenly
bursts golden as the sun makes
clear the arrival of day, erasing
all reflected delusions.

I am one with One.
