One As You Are One—A Meditation

This poem explores the interconnection of all things.

One As You Are One—A Meditation

  1. the intersection of two jet streams, and the dissipation—a phantom Maltese cross
  2. ecstatic humpback utterances with the dead drone of transcontinental ships
  3. carbon monoxide with Boreal forests in chlorophyll leaf
  4. old growth’s symbiotic intersections of fungal filaments and fine hairlike roots
  5. the intersection of lungs and free radicals we call oxygen
  6. the intersection of Rowan’s tired berries outside my window, and my longing for a cure
  7. the intersection of letters, packages, cell signals, and text messages, due to health orders and impending fines if we persist with interpersonal intersections
  8. the intersection of what we were told is either sacred or profane
  9. the intersection of father, son, spirit and divine feminine
  10. the intersection of gender, race, age and socioeconomics
  11. the intersection of all the stories of all the Ancestors
  12. the intersection of your story with my story, and your outrage with my offense
  13. the intersection of trigger points with reality, and reality once triggered
  14. the intersection of today and tomorrow within the mystery of midnight
  15. the intersection of tomorrow’s plans with the unplanned occurrences of last week
  16. the intersection of your thoughts with my thoughts and the meditations of our hearts
  17. the intersection of sacred and profane
  18. the intersection of this poem on this page on this device that you hold now at the intersection of your hand and your lap at the intersection of your body and your chair’s intersection with the floor’s intersection with the foundation of a built structure and the foundation of the earth’s intersection with space and time and infinity and one everlasting zero point energy amen.
