As I meditate in silence
The world around me folds
Into something I behold
I make abstraction a science
The petals on the steel
And the forms that they reveal
In this hierarchy of ideas
The Beautiful, the True and
The highest one is you
You are metaphysically fundamental
I try to name you when I sing
But you are Being, not a being

You are the One

As I meditate in silence
The world as it appears
No long holds me here
I long for ontological guidance
And so you reveal
From you emanates all that’s real
As I meditate in silence
The tethers of my fear
Completely disappear
Your touch is infinitely gentle
As I am reborn
Into this open morn

You are the One
