How the Kingdom Appears

Duality disappears
no opposition
no apposition

No more he/she, us/them
No infinite/mortal and other
logical/intuitive dichotomies
Science and Romanticism
agree to inner unity
outward mystery

Paradox reveals
Corrective lenses distort
Reality and truth are
blurred and crisp
universal and relative
What love can

See the flow of substance and matter
in the dances of molecules and particles
See the waves constantly rebalancing
terror and tender
individual and community
promises and truth
What faith can

Wonderful! I especially love your closing stanza, and the dancing particles.
