what is a poem but a group of words

and a word but a group of letters

what is a letter but a means to a word

and a word is but a symbol for something that IS

so a poem might share an experience

that we can all relate to

a human experience, a story of birth, life, and death

begining, middle, and end

but what if death comes first, then birth, then living--

what if we have it all twisted around and backwards

are we humans experiencing the eternal Self

or the eternal Self experiencing being human--

the question rises in the mind of each one

each one being the same beyond form

the question is an invitation to meet yourself

somewhere between asking and knowing

inbetween breath and thought

beyond time and space
