I can imagine a life
after this one,
in which I am the same,
but different.
I can sense the timelessness of
the possibility of not ending,
of becoming a long vista of compassionate quietude,
of hearing every Moment

placed over the Heart.

but I can’t remember beginning
or being born
or ever having been anyone else.

along this way,
the being I am today
appeared.  (And now,
is Dissolving
without Ending.)

His Presence arises within me…
He is recognizable, unmistakable,

many beings we know- a departed aunt,
a deceased friend,
the Buddha, Walter Russell,
Mary, Harriet Tubman.
We each have a color
in the palette of

along this way,
Harriet Tubman became herself,
and now,
she will never stop…

Something keeps
keeps Becoming.
It seems as though
there will always
be more of us-
as if we never grow

Are we not the same?
But different?
