Beginning & Ending

by stewart

If you wish to know how something ends

 Look at its beginning.”

-Traditional Saying


Breaking apart, the acorn

Goes deep into the earth;

And as the seasons pass

Grows into a mighty oak.

Spreading its limbs for many years,

Giving shade and nourishment to the countryside;

One day, only to decay

And return back to the earth.


O spiritual traveler, when you close your eyes

For the last time, where will you go?


The dual sparks of energy

That joined and exploded

Inside your mother’s womb,

Carry you through your days.

Then one day, this energy too

Must journey on to the next place.


Where will this life energy take you?


Remember, it was Love

That brought you here,

And Love will carry you

From world to world;

Finally to return Home

And celebrate anew

In your Mother’s Arms.
