Ocean Within

(after the painting by Kazuaki Tanahashi)

In every ocean an ocean within
and within it a current spiraling down
through infinite seas and unfathomable depths
to a world where only luminous creatures live
without a breath or sound or moment in the sun.

In every person a person within
and within him a prayer falling from Heaven
through endless lives to the center of the mind
where there is no light
and thoughts forbidden as is the sun.

In every atom In all of space
smaller particles smaller and smaller still
as they circle down to the place of their birth
where all that remains is a single word.
