Redirecting—the new version will be permanent.

A New Poem

Nick Kalfas
from South Australia

I have locked myself away
In that innermost chamber
Which is God's—and is God
There to remain
Rooted in Primal soil—
Essence in essence
Being in being.

Beyond this chamber there is nothing
For the chamber is all:
All proceeds from it
All returns to it
Besides it there is nothing—
No identity, no knowledge
No existence—voided all.

Yet to define this chamber—
This Primal abiding—
Itself moved by nothing
Yet the mover of all—
Is to define a something
That is no something
For it is all.
