The unraveling of an elephant


The unraveling of an elephant                                                               

The unraveling of an elephant
by Eruch at Baba’s instruction.

Did the lesson end before the embroidery
was completely ruined

or did He let everyone see
the practical price that must be paid –

what is left when the self comes apart;
illusion exposed, truth unveiled?

Crucial, inherent are ruin and destruction
in those interwoven threads

which make up the trembling figures
on our shimmery, flimsy veils.

O child of God, you fear the Nothingness
which (claims Meher) contains the Everything.
