Theresa Haffner



I know there is a oneness

Sense, feel, intuit that

There is a oneness

About which all things evolve.

Ever at the center

Never at the circumference

These things I have been taught

Ingrained, propagandized

Then I experienced for myself

I realized that all things are one thing

And one thing is all things.

It is hard to remember

In the rush of the city

In the maze of technology

In the speed of a microchip

But in the silence

The memories return

And so does the oneness.

    What a wonderfully worded poem, rebuffing the illusion of polarity in it's various forms of expression! ... a poetic Kierkrgaardian concept made enjoyably readable. Very well done. Thank You!
