I Am One

I am one
Who lives
On the ocean floor
Feeling everything
As it sways this way and that
Feeling the depth of things
Looking up at the waves
As they rise and fall
This life is part agony
And part ecstasy
A singular purpose
Of feeling fully
The weight of
The human experience

I am one
Who soars the heavens
As a free bird
Far above the fray
Touching the stars
In love with the sun
Gathering prometheus fire
And swooping down
To share its power
With those walk the land

I am nothing, just this
A silence that walks the world
Here for a time in form
Human, divine, animal, alien
I am in everything
And everything is in me
Humble and prayerful
Yielded all arrogance
And surrendered
To the sheer mystery
We call life.
