A Meditation on One 

One is not lonely;
it is the beginning
and always the end.
One can meet another
and ripen into two who
can beget three or four, or not...
They can remain two or perchance
part, and become one again,
but once one knows
the feeling of two, its heart
invariably yearns for more.
This remembering sets
a longing afire; even God
willed to see God, and said
“Let there be Light.”
