Two headed Snake

I belong nowhere
I belong everywhere

I am lazy
I am a workaholic

Mindful and thoughtless
Woman and man
One and many

Saint and sinner
Whole and broken

Still becoming
and perfect the way I am now

Totally unique
And perfectly ordinary

Whatever is true
The opposite is also true

I am not my thoughts
And acts speak so much louder than words
But still I continue with my words of wonder

Not yet there
Already home

So it is now and ever shall be
World without end

    How did you know I was going to ask you to send me a copy! And complete with a picture. Your words are surely true. Here we are , humans going in opposite directions. No wonder life is complicated. ❤️Bonnie

    Thank you for sharing a poem from your recent quest, from one who has not done quite the same contemplative work (yet)
