Non-Dual Gospel of Matthew: 10:29


“Are not two sparrows sold for a penny?  And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father.”

The economics of love
is not the fluid thing we think;
what currency is enough to call the plant forth,
sway the tides
or tell the sun when
to lay its fiery burden down
in shadow at last?

Each breath,
sung or sighed over a lover’s chest,
or passed out into those
sitting vigil around you
at the end,
participates in intimacy always.

From wing to branch to sky,
to a slow sinking into moss
and damp ground,
apparent change
does not disrupt this circle dance,
and long after this
delicate world itself has gone
to dust and drifting,
the concept of alone
a passing sale
ephemeral idea.
