spinning winding then weaving
spiraling into endless
connections which appear
to be hanging nowhere
suspended without edge
ending always at inception
never does the fiber fray
the beginning continues

follow where it leads
through the unknown
miles of endless webs
a glittering reflection
illuminating the darkness
of ancient intricacies

dispersed without direction
resonating chords
of the cosmos naked
glory of formless flow
undefined by outlines
unshadowed unbroken
blurring the boundaries
between us and we

Enjoyed this very much.

  4. Fascinating here the insight of creation as eternal beginnings, a sum of possibilities staring again and again. Where the agricultural human sees creation as potential for maturity, so that the ripening is all. Something requiring weeding, pruning, fences, culture: finite margins for infinite variety.
