Poem By David Taylor
Bells ring and flower petals cascade to the ground.
The waters of the brook call out.
Bird song reverberates in the sky
as water is drawn from a deep well
and shines with cosmic radiance.
Stillness permeates all movements
and gives a gentle harmony to all sounds.
The heavens join in one angelic song.
All time is present now and without moving
continues its procession.
All is whole in each point in space
as all space is contained in one.
All things made of grosser elements
through knowledge display their essence
just as each ring displays its gold.
Time, space and matter transcended
no longer binding soul to body
in its earth bound race.
All beings included in the joy
of the dissolution of imagined bonds
and embraced in indescribable peace.
