Upper and under world

Upper and under worlds

It is hard to see life from both perspectives

of the upper and the under world

it is difficult to perceive both the surface

and the depth of things

how can you at the same time watch

the atoms you are made from

and the stars that each night rise into the sky

And yet both are equally necessary

for despite their fairness and their beauty

what would the stars do without the atoms

how would a tree live without roots

and how could you exist without me

Sometimes I have a brief glimpse on your existence

the wondrous world you come from

appears for an instant before my eyes

and I dream of the time when

the upper and the under world

shall come together again

and we will be whole again in love
