We look, we see nothing, we call it spirit

we look,
we see
nothing,
we call it
a spirit
we listen,
we hear
nothing,
we call it
silence
we touch,
we feel
nothing,
we call it
infinitesimal
these three
voids
cannot be
plumbed--
they become
one
rising
they do not
shine,
setting
they do not
dim
continuously
creating
the unnameables
flow back
to their original
nothingness
shape
without form
image
without depth
vague shadow
walk
up to it
you'll see
no
head
stalk
behind it
you'll catch
no
tail
keep
track
of the way
that was
you'll
master
each moment
now
knowing
the beginning
of the maze
of history
unwinds
the thread
along
the way
