This poem came to me after practicing a deep meditation…
As I meditated I really experienced the connection (or rather lack of separation) between myself, and all of creation. It was a powerful experience and fortunately this poem came through to capture it in words.

Sutra Of Stars
There is a web that weaves
the fabric of creation together
in a net that contracts and expands.
Eons pass with each inhale and each exhale.
From the tiniest fiber
to the whole of the infinite Universes,
there is no separation from the rhythmic dance
There is a Sutra of Stars
that draws the heavens together in its spiral.
There is an orchestra amongst the atoms
so that even the most miniscule
is a seed of the profound.
The countless threads that spin
through every moment, every particles
like beads of a necklace,
pearls on a web.
Each strand stimulating the others,
in a cosmic cascade of energy.
The journey from here to the farthest reaches
would take you right back to where you began.
If you pluck just one string
they all will vibrate
with the same song.
