The Friend


Philip Claude Andermann

I searched all around me with the thin flashlight fading
of my thoughts and deeds:
twisted by the clutter close around of my life, a ribbon of
light a road
raised dusty stars of hope -
on it in the distance
did another person travel - a True friend
also seeking a Way?

The Way to slowly open the heavy,
creaking door to
an Enlightened life,
a LIT room...
there?... perhaps...
We shortened the road between us,
a golden beam broadening with the gap of the door
as we prepared to enter each other's room.

We ENTERED each other and touched explosively
the light switch within each other's room eternally
VAST as the universe: a lasting broadness strangely such
that - though we'd see, do things so differently,
- explore it in different directions,

we'd always be close together
because to uncluttered explore all humanity
was the Way to uncluttered explore
ourelves and each
other embracingly:
the door wide open to that kiss
of our freed Sun.
