We Are One. {Poem} ~ Salvatore Vionito

We are one.

We speak to each other

as if there is a distance

between you and me.

A longing so deep

it would stop the flow of Love

from consuming

our thoughts and cradling us

in its silent warmth.

Is it not by the sum of all

of our parts that we become

so much more?

The clouds fade and renew

In the vastness of the sky.

The waves form and dissolve

in the depths of its maternal ocean.

Even the Earth is held In the womb

of the Universe’s ebony embrace.

Living in the mind

often blinds us from the Oneness

That exists between all things.

But deep in the heart

there is no forgetting

or remembering,

distance or closeness.

There is no More or Less.

You are my breath,

The rhythmic beat of my chest,

my eyes when they are open

to all things.

I am,


You are.

We are One.
