Not Above Life, But In It

All that was empty
Has inexplicably been filled.
All that was separate and alone
Swims now, in the warm, sweet waters
Of the one life, living itself in awe,
Animated by vitality and love,
Moving forever towards
Who knows what…

Far beyond our power
To imagine the new land
We travel
On wings built of
All that has troubled us.
Not above life
But firmly and
Solidly in it.
