The Dungbeetle's Grizzly poem for 2004.
across the great divide
that separates us from ourselves
- through scenery as stunning
as any that be-decks
the outer whorls.
we light the path
for others on the Trail
through mist and fire
- above temptation, beyond Desire
the dedication of the soul
eternities of Peace
we reach a place of quiet release
where countless infinities
in ever-lasting Grace.
where Such-ness obliterates
the struggle to remain
states Her irrefutable claim
to ALL that IS
in radiating, un-spoken Name.
driven by a higher Will
and resonating memories of stony thought
we are dissolved by Her ambidextrous skill
until there is only a shining hOMe
in realms of nought
where everything is (sensationally) still.
this journey of devotion
through labyrinths of imagination
we eventually Surrender
our identity, persuasion, attachments and gender
to these moments of ecstasy and comradeship
that dwell with unexpected purity
at the summit of our final, lasting elation
our unambiguous destination.
