Nothing and everything
The endless void fills all time
One moves in the silence
Stretching and reaching
Towards the other as two
Swiftly take flight.
They mingle and join
Each claiming their own side
So three may point the way.
Each base stretched far and wide.
Foundations are laid
By another close at hand
Who opens the four sealed gates.
Disruption and creative force
Issues forth as the skillfully crafted
Shield of focus reflects the five.
The light is fixed
The seeker is found
As outpour of healing grace
Gives way to the
Each walks a path of experience
Pulling and gathering from
Wisdom and lessons hard won
Fill what moves within.
As six expands to become seven
The meandering web that
Connects becomes entwined.
A continuum of dual
Portal opening and eight
The final climax of force contained.
Like amoebas they move and
Wiggle and stretch and pull
And strain until the
Tension and release
Catapult them over
The initiatory threshold of
Death’s nine gates.
All scatter and disperse
Once again seamlessly
Part of the void of the all
Once again the singular one rises
Reaching out towards its
Newly quickened mate.
