Foggy Road, painting by Tim Mullaney

“…unity in love is one of the most characteristic works of the inner self, so that paradoxically the inner “I” is not only isolated but at the same time united with others on a higher plane, which is in fact the plane of spiritual solitude.” Thomas Merton, The Inner Experience: Notes on Contemplation

in fog we walk
down the glistening road

our steps ring
like ice shattering

crystal souls, shards
sharp and eager
at last,
to rise.

You look
into my eyes
and see
nothing;

I look
into your eyes
and see
everything,

as together
we walk
down the shimmering
road.
