equals

the one and the many,
the all and the each,
you and I –
equal contributors to creation;
they are mind and matter,
every rhythm and every deviation.
animal, vegetal, mineral,
each a note in the triad;
the leaves on the tree,
trees in the forest,
all in on, one in all.

A short poem recited by Esho Phox to young Verali through the bars of her cell on her first night of confinement at Sohie Sha Monastery.
