From Birth to Death, pierced by the Burning Present

The inevitability  

of this moment…

Its movement 

a sharpened blade

a spike that drives inside you 

carries the seed

of all you need

 

With growing roots 

and growing trunk

into the past and future

Traces a lifeline as a dance

a winding helix in a trance 

opening worlds between its folds

the portals to peer into

 

The scales

of Seed of Life, unhatched

and Death’s untold conclusion 

are balanced as they should be

Woven as they are 

Not needing your permission

 

 

The pivot point immoveable 

and therefore 

ever-stable

you travel to and fro between 

the dream that hasn’t yet been seen 

the memory that still stays haunting…

 

And always at your centre point

the source of all that is you

the axis of the world is turning

 

From Birth to Death
from dawn to dusk

from thought to form 

 

This Tree of Life-like-dagger piercing 

you as ever 

yearning

fixed into the burning…

 

Present.
