by Ted MacGillivray
Age Group: Adult
Beyond the distant stars and constellations
Where speed-of-light and stasis are the same,
You drift alone in endless space, a trinity --
Tattered child in quaking chill of silence,
Adult imprisoned in a trackless egg,
Buddha, one-hand raised in soft applause.
Pilgrim, this is not the sacred temple.
Beyond the reach of wavelength, angle, vector:
You sought to touch the minds of the Divine,
Clarity's insight, welcome warmth of home.
But now you are three, one with fingers bloody
From tearing culture's fabric, while child and buddha, Helpless in the darkness, watch and dream of unity.
