Poem: "the uncountable gods"
This poem came out of the December 3, 2013 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by a prompt from [personal profile] perfectworry. It has been selected in an audience poll as one of the generally sponsored poems.

"the uncountable gods"

enlightenment is
without number, without form
without measurement

it kindles a spark --
out of the mind's emptiness,
a flame starts to burn

I am without shape,
devoid of expectation,
an uncarven stone

I am surrounded
by holy places, breathing
a wind of incense

what cannot be seen
cannot be counted or caught,
only admired

everywhere the gods,
like drops of water at sea,
follow their own tides
