Book: Inspirational Poetry: you and eternity: immortal self: short prose poems

A book excerpt from the religion and spirituality online library.






You are the dew, settling gently back upon that from which you were lifted. You do not deluge this earth like rain. You descend while we sleep, and rise before we wake. And whether you occur unnoticed or noticed, no one imagines that you eternally moisten ...what never dries.





Life is the flower and the bee; you are merely the pollen-sac, filled and emptied, emptied and filled; you are the unpleasant absence without which neither flower, nor fruit, nor bee, would be.


You are not the sun, nor the mist, nor the sight with which light is viewed; you are the rainbow, eternity's transience, born dimming miraculously away; here and not here, gone and not gone. You alone dissipate, while the sun, the mist, and the eyes remain.

Dreams end. What ends is a dream.
