Echo

The centrifugal force pulled him
out of himself, into himself,

around himself until there was
a much smaller self in harmony

with the pull of the Sun, the spin
of the earth, the light and dark

of the moon, the ragged, jagged
mountains, the churning, yearning

seas, the glorious deciduous and
evergreen trees but then there was

the pull back, push back in reaction
to the disconcerting, dizzying swirl

in and out and round about cosmos,
creation, relational elation moving

into oneness with all. Let go; go
with the eternal flow of justice,

mercy, peace, self-sacrificial
love — just let go, embrace

the echo, echo, echo. Goodbye
and hello.
