“If we can cultivate a concern for others, keeping in mind the oneness of humanity, we can build a more compassionate world” Dalai Lama


It turned up one day
completely out of the blue it would seem,
though not in the post,
no envelope or stamp,
there wasn't any wrapping,
nothing to denote its significance,
but there it was 
an indescribable feeling,
a sense of at-onement with all things,
extinguishing either-or relays,
an end to duality,
everything as pure gift.

  6. Hey, brother ~ you’re being used! Haha! One of my other subscription sites is suddenly not letting me leave comments, and I’m curious whether this one to you goes through, or whether it’s a larger glitch than I hope it’s not. Thanks for being my test case ☺️

  7. I so enjoyed your poem, Paul, and look forward to that ‘indescribable feeling’ the ‘sense of at-onement with all things’. I also like the play on atonement/at-onement. Nicely done.
