something
indefinite
but complete
was born
before
heaven
and
earth
calm,
amorphous,
standing
by itself,
it revolves
without
change
or pause
you
may
think
of it
as
being
mother
of the world
I
don't
know
its name,
so
I
call it
the way
trying
to be
more precise
I
label it
great
being
great

means
flowing
on
and on
it expands
far out
into space
then curves
back
returning.
the earth
shapes
us
heaven
shapes
the earth
the way
shapes
heaven
its own suchness
shapes
the way
