It seems to me, now
The ushering Out of a life
Is as Sacred as the ushering In.
The entire, unfathomable Universe
Of a personality
With its splendors, flaws, tics, traits
And Deep Intelligence …
The Great Complexity!
Ignited by the One Consciousness
Was Born and now Subsides
in these sad & playful pajama party days
The Reality of Soul
And the Love that unites us, (always united us)
And brings us together now,
as around a sputtering candle,
Witnesses to last light
on this night
… If only from our view.
