For Unity

for unity,
first realize multiplicity
the many, all at once
preceding a grasping
to this or that

at the edge of chaos
beautiful order is born
from the formless
crystalline form learns to be

the pretense
of imposing
a fortified notion
upon the living ocean
potentiality in motion
burns out its fuel
falls to the center
composts in the heart

the proper place
of the conceiving mind
is turned inwards against
its own hubris
slicing off layers
until I find
that my will
has become
the universe itself.
