WHOLENESS

inspired by Hugh Mackay

The time I have spent living is equal
to the time I have spent dying, and with
one foot in the grave, with paper and quill,
I can read to you the truth or the myth,
but each will leave you standing by me, still:
“The truth I have discovered in Wholeness,
mostly by including physical woe
in all of my days. Without the cold kiss
of sorrow, living is a lie. Calm highs,
they say, are found without dipping your toe
into low, rough waves mirroring sky’s bliss,
but you must consume this sea completely.
See completely and, even in blindness,
you will have all vision—plus, more to see.”
