The Eternal
The Eternal
Poetry

It is not old,
Yet it comes through the wisdom of the ages.
It is not young,
Yet it comes through the passion of innocence.
It is not revolutionary,
Yet it comes proclaiming change.
It is not solitary,
Yet it travels alone, seeking the open heart.
It is not lonely,
Yet it seeks relationship.
It is not attached,
Yet it connects everything.
It is the fresh return of the eternal,
And it demands our response.
