The Tingle

A dharma is an arc of contact
between the almost touching spheres
of This and That.

A dharma is the briefest moment of impact
between this mind-constructed world
and That.

A stroke immeasurably light
splits the moment into then and now
and dies

into the skin that instantly absorbs
the photon’s energy
the whisper of one leaf of grass
the faintest tingle
of the Other
then another
as like rain they fall

until it feels like Something that
surrounds your flesh
in the vast deep where it is swimming
toward the tunnel and the light
where all that are dying
are also being born.
