Dark Honey


Inside this body of dust

is a subtler body

made of breath.

Inside this body of breath

is a subtler body

made of starlight.

You get dizzy

with hosts of stars  

swirling through the wild 

expanding silence  

of your heart,

the same stars that

glitter above you!

But this vertigo subsides

when you fall 

even deeper inside

and come to rest

in a body beyond the stars,

thick and sweet

as honey.

Few have tasted 

this body of darkness,

this body of love.

But some of us have no choice.

Friend, you are the darkness

sheathed in starlight

sheathed in breath

sheathed in a body 

of dust.
