upon the slate of the cosmos

ways for meaning to express itself

many are the ways 
that meaning shapes itself into reality,
I know words as a prime conduit,
I also appreciate dance, 
when movement and stasis
speak loudly in their own way,
music, when melody and rhythm,
move us at our deepest,
service, when giving to the other
heals the giver, too,

I appreciate work
when doing trumps all else,
as action is immediate to the moment,
one can talk,
and one can do,

I appreciate the laying on of hands
of those who care, of those who shape,

humans at our best fight dissolution and entropy
and seek to let that of God in us come forth,
for meaning to write itself
upon the slate of an unconscious cosmos.
