être

value, transcend utility

purpose transcending amenity

meaning transcends desires

substance beyond material

 

être

 

we are not but material things

formed mere material beings

ignoble in existence

but for aspirations and endeavoring

 

être

 

what of the sublime?

are we sublimable?

our essential invisible* to the eye?

 

être

 

how we call our self

summarily infinitive:

being

messaging subliminally

the prophecy of an eternal unit

and unity

 

être

 

is there such a thing?

is there such a being

sublime?

 

 

 

i know

i know i cannot reach it

yet i can seek it

and seek it

ever

beyond

my

être.
