this unspeakable unchanging Light

 

even I,
whose lifecourse
has been mapped
by a fierce longing for
something more
real
than words and beliefs

 

even I,
whose brilliant beacon
was oddly both
fore and aft as
this lifeboat surged
through seas of shimmering
experience

 

even I
am shocked silly
to find that this Light –
this unspeakable unchanging
Light
is here, is here
as ‘I’

and none other than ‘I’
