Circling Round Experience
Fame, reality, vanity,
Its nuance and illusion.
Music, greed, the vices. Slices all.
Ageing, all the changes that belong -
Emerging right, the one day wrong.
Nature, all of it, its sectioned parts
Which in the end are all one thing.
The spiritual and secular.
What else is there:
Exhortation and suggestion,
Love relationships that chip away
At family and at nation-ships.
Breakings down and building ups,
Then breaking down again: a chain.
No end of increase and contraction.
Yet, in some way evolution.
Peace and power and purity,
Knowledge, love and bliss…
These the building blocks of man from soul;
The building blocks that make Man whole.
Loss and gain again, again. The universal;
Seeing through to it and all.
All the time a readying.
All a means of steadying a self
Which ends in death each breath.
Nothing more to win or lose
And all the daily news.
Predictions, guessing, meaningless.
