Spiral Galaxy

Matter collapses under its
relentless gravity,
then is pulled back together,
forming drifting clusters of stars
and a myriad galaxies.

The universe expands
from its explosive darkness

to fill every breath,
every quiet moment,
every uncomfortable feeling
with the inexorable and tedious
chatter of the mind.

if I just let things crumble
under their own weight,
and wait
and listen to the space they leave,
the unfathomable wisdom they shape
with the sound and depth of silence.

toward the stillness
from which silent dreams emerge,
a quiet, empty space
of solitude and peace.

with deceitful resolution.

and love will take me,
but I am prayerful
and irreverently ready.

A mountain abides undisturbed
in its quiet serenity,
beautiful for no one to see.
Its stillness is the universe smiling.
