All or One


All or One
Each one
is like
a precious
jewel,
continually
fashioned by
a higher hand(s),
hewn,
turned,
sculpted,
etched,
watered,
tumbled,
mined -
whatever the particular case may be: individually.
There is
a wisdom
in this
that no-one
knows and
cannot spell,
but the
higher hand(s)
to which
the face
is drawn -
seeking,
asking,
pining,
hurting,
illumining,
wondering,
and finally -
seeing -
that all of this pain is about divining,
and that somebody up there does like you,
after all, each and every one of you, All or one.

Traveller, at least we can be sure there is something behind all our hard work! Imogen Crest, Hermit.
