Learning that light
folds in on itself
as it simultaneously expands
I think of my friend at five,
standing in front of a tree
and watching it dissolve
into patterns, into Tree pattern,
then feeling herself as Me pattern
and seeing the landscape fill with light
as all the patterns of all the beings
lit with joy to see her understand –
and I wonder if my experience
of light swirling and folding,
condensing and growing,
is anything like her experience
and the way she has built
an ecology from seed shapes ...
or is that we
are separate gods,
or possibly separate ants –
particles of light)? Linking to Tuesday Platform at 'imaginary garden with real toads'.
