Friday Poem: All In One And One In All

paperweight

My elderly mother-in-law is reaching the end  of her long and happy life, so along-side the worries about her care and the trips back and forth to see her, it’s a time to contemplate the meaning of life, the universe, and everything. This poem is one way of looking at that great question.garland

As the flower contains the seed
And the seed the flower
I contain,
And am contained by
You.

As the ocean is the water
And the water is the ocean;
As the forest is the trees
And the trees the forest;
As the beach is the sand
And the sand the beach,
In the same way also
I am you.
