Gods Touching Everything Human
In the authentic movement much energy is moved,
in simple, godlike ways.
Nothing is wasted, every condition used-
contacting the furthest reaches of human beauty.
Every single gestalt is beauty,
never is anything off the track.
The crawling, the walking, the snake and the prey,
the shivering life of an innocent sinner-
unfinished gestalts, almost deepest of all.
A being tries to crawl, but cannot fully,
a spear is in its side:
We see gods, touching everything human
turning it to perfect beauty.
From this is all and every art derived,
every drama and poem, any dance or display-
are like stills, humbly pointing at the actual movie.
This illumination of souls,
this abundance of energy-
where God´s beauty emerges in human form,
in time will call forth
the willed love, in every witness.
