One

number-one


One

I am Brahma
the straight line, the upright being,

fire that flares,
seed without end, manifold

self beyond all
polarity, radiating sun:
the all.

Philosophers considered one a non-number,
generatrix of all that follows.

Other.

The singularity. The lone.

From the Indo-European oi-qos we achieve solitude,
while the collective meaning of one derives from the Sanskrit sam.

United in itself, it changes nothing,
becoming everything.

On its side it represents the horizon.

Alone is all-one.
The Latin non is one negated, as is the German nein.

Symbol of intellect, the Hindu moon glows wide.
Atomic number of hydrogen, magician’s numeral,

monad and eccentric, I bear the empty product.

  1. nice nice! many of one back to one….none…..the void w/the lack of sights and sounds. A knowing that just encompasses knowingness all around. It’s a fate of our take …the layers we weave before we take that carpet ride…..Much love flowic…I might be joining sooner than I had expected….no expectations…not anymore, just living these last moments of life…..purging here the crimes to this body & mind. I can not content to pretend this might be my end life is hard when you haven’t much as family or friends because all you tried to do was heal your own….my selfishness of fear of strangers has come to call…..I’m not ready to go…well, my mind was ready for some fun….my body ..she’s tired now & the pain won’t go away…..and they are too busy trying to dig her grave…..she hasn’t anything to save her day.
    Much love light & ladybugs!! Ty for letting me purge here too (haha) Your writings have always been most evoking and emotive….ty
