As a mystery

#1

When everything was still nameless,
desire made secret pacts with the primal
darkness. From the unmanifest antithesis,
love was birthed as mystery – as the changeable
constant . What else can simultaneously
be both cause and consequence?

 

Writing little poems inspired by the Tao Te Ching (with my own regional/cultural spin), after reading this post by a fellow blogger.

  1. I love the compactness of your ‘little poem’ inspired by the Tao Te Ching, Rajani. You’ve woven your own special magic into the cosmos with ‘desire made secret pacts with the primal darkness’ and ‘love… as the changeable constant’.
