upon which all my existences run.
Jeweled beads one by one rest on me,
though I am not the beads.
Memory to memory, life to life and all that lies between,
I am the string, the ocean in a drop of water—
not separate from.
The same string that runs through you and me,
the thread of being that knits the seams of everything.
Woven of light, the exhalation of God weaving through
me and you, the stars, a child’s laughter, a grieving mother,
the deepest sea.
There is no other but the breath of God.
I’ve been here forever, so have you.
