EVERYTHING

The mind and universe confide. Between
Them, they are one. Like lovers devoted.
They share fluctuations on an ocean
Wave, washing mindful shores, to redeem
Those sparkling pearls, that have formed along.
Pearls of wisdom and love, confounding one
On sands that motion to and fro, unseen.
Like lovers they, the mind and universe 
Converge – inseparable – beholding
One another. Cosmic thoughts emerge
Like bubbles on the ocean waves, changing
Detailed rhythms – familiar all the same.

Together, they hear a song; they dance as
Lovers do – mirroring both reflections.

    David, everything is a simple task as our minds flow with the Universe and collide as one.. In our souls we are the Universe and the Universe is our space for our motions and emotions to overflow. With the greatest feelings we own and we are all one, source of energy called love.. Enjoyed your clever and brilliant poem,..p.d.

    Sometimes our most profound thoughts come when we feel like we are "one with the universe," David. Very intelligent and provocative sonnet! Love, Carolyn
