From Where I Stand I See

decade to decade everything

is falling apart


is coming together

if I sit down

stay in one place

I move forward

if I move forward

walk on two legs

I stay in one place

if I hold on

keep what I have

I lose it

if I let go

what I hold

it comes back to me

if I see

the whole cosmos

in a stone

salt will taste the same


to moment


comes together                     as it falls apart
