I keep reaching for it,
wondering if it is there to find.
Have I so assiduously blocked its access
to my Soul’s most vulnerable parts
with this other
is unable to unfold.
Or, perhaps, it,
in its wholeness,
does not exist.
And the One recognized fully
is unique from all others,
and such not to be found again
If either are so,
what a wondrous protection to my heart;
for if you cannot reach the Soul,
you cannot harm the heart.
My waking days and restful nights
not altered with whims and worries
or problematic plights.
Harnessing only the here and the now
enjoying the human gifts of closeness and touch
without the relinquishing of
This shall be the goal.
