Be Still and Know

“Be still and know that I am God.”
~Psalm 46:10


We celebrate the oscillation
of our inner stillness
in waves of “I” and “Thou.”
The play of Lover and Beloved
inside us is the play of
Subject and Object
in every act of perception,
beat or beatific.
The space between these
I-Thou quantum fluctuations
in the vacuum
of pure consciousness
is the space of creation,
where worlds burst forth
for the sake of perception,
an apple bud on a twig tip,
the scent of lilac in the blues
of your garden,
the ancient touch
of dancers dancing
for no other reason.
