”This elementary rapport with the worth of being is both felt and affirmed for the being in its otherness to our mind beyond dualism. This is extremely difficult to understand.” Morisato, 97.

There are no worthless

objects only personal

limits. Fat goslings

graze under broken

skies. Down below in the cove,

ducks go in circles.

I let it all speak

to me and through me. Divine


Adam and Eve walked

hand in hand in the garden.

I’ve known her light touch.
