The rift began long before the stones

held our memories

You might say it began before time

when light divided darkness. Or

did darkness divide light?

There is a rift that runs through the human brain

creating the left v. the right

logical v. illogical, perhaps

yet one cannot exist without the other

The rift is our own illusion

eyes forgetting how to see

 the lines that weave

through life, stronger than our DNA

perfect cohesion defying density

if we could only see beyond

the rift, again

The Current of Life #poetry #yogapoems

Life continually humbles

Throwing me backward into the current

To tumble among rocks

Where am reminded that I am a collection

Of molecules adhered into a body

To experience unity, even though

The mind reaches for division

Parting the elements with thoughts

Breaking cohesion with beliefs of otherness

But when I am swept backward

Back into the current that is life

I am reminded of Truth

The essence of things broken down

Into origins. That I am a body flowing

With molecules holding hydrogen to oxygen

Bound to carbon stolen from a life before me

Realizing, I have borrowed this collected body

So that I might experience life gathered together

Before its bonds are broken, then gathered, once again

Into the ever-flowing current
