The Glare

2

look past the shine

the glare

the surface spit

it is as revealing

as a sheer skirt

with fine nothingness

and ripples of faux depth

shimmering away

fleeing you could say

against a fixed foe

unmovable with

righteousness

Look Deeper

it is not found in the forest

beneath the ancient green layers

it’s not swaying in the ocean

like a million tiny jelly-fish

it’s not soaring through a red sky

at sunset on a black sanded beach

~~

its calling to you relentlessly

like the birds when they first wake up

its waiting for you to ask one question

like a concerned owl for your lost soul

it’s adoring you from the distance

of an eastern star to a western bound meteor

~~

yet you turn away towards meaningless ideas

like a colony of ants forging across the sea

yet you learn all about your physical self

like a cat lying in the sun licking his fur

yet after 4000 years your awareness of Truth

equals the amount a monkey sees in a mirror

Gospel of Thomas, Nag Hammadi Library

(3) Jesus said, “If those who lead you say to you, ‘See, the kingdom is in the sky,’ then the birds of the sky will precede you.

If they say to you, ‘It is in the sea,’ then the fish will precede you.

Rather, the kingdom is inside of you, and it is outside of you.

When you come to know yourselves, then you will become known, and you will realize that it is you who are the sons of the living father.

But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty.”
