Just Call

Lonely, I shudder through dusty cobwebs,

destroy magnificent creations

woven by the night creatures.

I don’t know where I’m going

and as the old path

crumbles to dust behind me,

I’m calling to someone, anyone.

I’ve grown myself just for this

exquisite moment to swoop

from the future

to hold myself,

this shaking, frightened child.

And now in this instant of light,

I see myself, always

my own resource, hidden until

this fractal bursts into my view.

And still, my hardwon wisdom

seems wasted; there are no words

I can whisper

to these young ears. But

look, my eyes, at this sudden

sunlight on a spider’s web,

a single rainbow-jeweled droplet

at each intersection.

We open the illustrated

Indra’s Net, a child’s book.

Here I am

reflected in every

surface, beautiful

symmetry revealed.

And I understand yesterday

and again today.

Summon me, and I will come

throughout the ages.

  1. These are getting so intricate. I am loving this new space that is being created. This line though, “But look, my eyes, at this sudden sunlight on a spider’s web, a single rainbow-jeweled droplet at each intersection.” It is everything. My layering art has been taking all my attention lately, but you, you make me want to do a little writing! ❤

    1. Thank you, Raja! I’ve been waiting breathlessly to see your new layering art. So far your website won’t allow me to view it! I’m in a loop where I can only access it through Reader, and Reader won’t show me what you’ve created!

  2. It is quite human to see our selves reflected everywhere, but the world is reflected everywhere too in that net. (We take the world’s image so personally.) It is not an easy human thing grasp the spiritual fractal, nor do we readily acknowledge or embrace the world’s. I really liked the physical presence of this magnificent spreading truth.
