Infinite Edgeless Vastness

there is a source
a true self,
a soul,
she said

and
she
fell
through
knowing

embracing
mystery…

appearing to be
and appearing not to be

songbirds and stars  
shouting this mystery

selves searching to find
what is

closer than close,
beyond time,
and
timelessness 

i have a
separate awareness, 
she claimed  

as claiming laughingly
continues
impersonally

and it seems
i am here
a figment of 
imagination

dusting as infinity
dissolving as
mist and fog
while
appearing as what is
and is not

wholeness appearing
as separateness

unknowable
infinite
edgeless
timeless
vastness…

a great mystery

this, she-who-does-not-know, 
is and is not 
every thing
and
no thing 
playing as cosmic light

no thing and every thing
as a danceless dance
laughing and singing, 
crying and clinging,
as what is
eternally momentary
infinitely edgeless
unknowable
cosmic
joke

life appearing as living itself
as appearances
as what is

arising, dissolving,
a grand twinkling glimpse,
a fleeting appearance

nothingness
playing as
appearances of
everythingness and
nothingness
and everything
playing as 
appearances of
nothing.

    “wholeness appearing as separateness” I want that knowing. Thank you for the poem, Anita.

    • You are most welcome MV. You are that knowing and unknowing appearing as form and formlessness. Hugs, anita

    Completely and refreshingly mind blowing. Anita, ‘you’ have outdone yourself. Exactly what I needed to hear at this exact no-moment. WOW

    • Thanks pamika for sharing your resonance with these random marks on the page. How amazing this fleeting energy, this Mystery, seeing itself as print! xoxo,anita
