Re: Point of Reference*

.

There comes a point

It’s coming into focus

Scanning it, seeing

What it is, might be

.

Reference points all

Around outside inside

Cascading the senses

What to measure or

.

Score

Nothing

No need

Or is there

.

There comes a point

When seeing is seeing

Not a tool to shape

Reality map-out frame

.

Barter coordinate banter

Store hold hand-hold

Tether tie keep

Sure secure free

.

Advantage to what

Who pays the piper

What lock to key

Surveyor’s level rod

.

There comes a point

When no point is

True measure in the

Long or the short of it

.

Seeing

Only

Only

Seeing

.

And as that reference

One to another as

Other to one

We are

.

Searching

The crosshairs

Behold beyond

That I Am

.

All Wonder As This

All and many I meet myself

the prairie dogs out in the sun

the cat making its loud request

even the band members three

the silent one at work avoiding

the one who touches in asking

Each meeting and non-meeting

escalates the palpability of I-Thou

truly lightly firmly sometimes

fascination igniting conscience

tussle and pull forward backward

separateness stands to be shorn

Like the sheep giving it all over

for some other purpose than

their own, I now wearing some-

thing of the other as my cover,

this is how things get interesting

parsing apportioning we tempt

The unfortunate fate of old, worn

housings that which dances past

and through awkward dreams

unfettered and lost in designated

zones where no key or lock can

keep or much less open or close

Fancy that! How many times so

far have you walked onto That

stage, the one where most divine

counsel awaits ready to invite you

to burn As Yourself and No Other

resistance melting with that ace

As the curtain rises –an exposé

like no other upstages what once

was Now Seen Heard Spoken as

effulgence in the making unplugged

freeing the intermediaries of the toil

of battening down the misbegotten

I-Thou No Other

All Wonder As This

I-Thou As Other

All Wonder As This

I-Thou Be Loved

All Wonder As This
