Illumination - Love is All

Aug 29, 2015 09:38AM ● By Erica Shames

Beneath a deep-Autumn sky of

floating clouds and weightless


this pristine forest world is bathed

in resplendent mountain moonlight

on this profound and glorious night,

when the wilderness whispers its simple

truths to the ever-wandering seeker of

careful, clear mind and gentle spirit-heart,

as all knowledge, point, and purpose

distill to one grand-immortal truth,

   that Love is all.
