Possibility

shadow

Sometimes you want to reach out and touch someone;
anyone, to feel the vibrancy of life:

pulsating, screaming, desperate beyond the cold affectless world;

a language below language releasing one from meaning
allowing that which means nothing in itself
the potential for possibility

– a shadow flowing across warm flesh
triggering thought between shadow and flesh,
a visible movement of the invisible
between the seeing and unseeing eye…

darkness against darkness:

there, just there, at the intersection of the impossible
the possible is born – a creative event
that has no beginning nor end, unprecedented:
an unmaking more than a making,
a slow unraveling of all you’ve ever been –
flesh from flesh, thought from thought,
a gift that is no longer a sacrifice and requires no acknowledgement:
just there at the zero point of all things one discovers the possibility of love.
