The Morning reading: "there is no other body"

Within this tree
~ Jane Hirshfield

Within this tree
another tree
inhabits the same body;
within this stone
another stone rests,
its many shades of grey
the same,
its identical
surface and weight.
And within my body,
another body,
whose history, waiting,
sings: there is no other body,
it sings,
there is no other world.

(with thanks to the beauty we love)
