 Spirit Chimes

Unfinished Bridge To the Infinite

First light observed me
like a serpent's eye,
and then,
like everything too
startling for
this world,
it ended,
and charcoal clouds
have charged in
from the West:

sky soup,
magnificent doom
or art . . .

I choose art,
and stay for the
too beautiful
to own, but someone
does, of course,
so let them
make room for me
at the feet of God
because one day
I will come here
to die
and I will become
the mountain—
an ever-changing,
changeless saga
of defiance,

and I will move
in stillness
like the
dawn-tinged fox,
unaware of its splendor,
its unawareness
its splendor,
because beauty just is,

and I will finally believe:
there's no place to
be alone when love
is all there is,
and you are

Another storm has
clothed me
in the silk of purity,
and I rehearse
my transition.

I walk through
crystal fire
and return
to the beginning
of everything.

Patricia Joan Jones
