You and I are chained together,
seven billion daisies connected
one to one. The threads of similarity
connect us far more than do our
genetic accidental pairings
We can choose to categorize
each other by gender, race
or ethnicity or instead,
allow nature to inform us.
In sharing ninety-percent
of our human DNA with our
primate cousins, how could
we imagine at microscopic
depth we are anything except
the same encodings of quantum
matter? By blood, by breath,
by chemical composition, we each
reveal our connection Divine,
chained one to one, seven billion
daisies- fragrant with beauty’s potential,
waiting for the unitary moment to blossom.
As an Ecstatic Poet, my aim is to awaken in you, the part of you that knows the truth of your being, the beauty of your soul.
