Love’s measure

Learning to be false –
I heard a Zen Master once say: When we were young, we were taught, ‘One plus one equals two’. We learn to be false, one plus one equals One

Desire here has come to be
A moment in the light
The searcher now has found a way
Returning from the night

In respite far from this way
A sleep within the mind
The candles flame returning
To seek as life would find

It taken by the passion
This choice to come to be
Thought and feeling blend into
The life of you and me

Becomes the will within again
One hundred steps are taken
Far away the boarder crossing
Souls through wombs awaken

A mother’s hand to hold
And fragrant earth to till
Ten thousand heartbeats n’er enough
Love’s measure to fulfill
