One in the Once of a Whim


There’s plenty potential,

much less, actual;

but there’s more

to eventual arise.


Becoming and Being,

two ends of Been,

comes once

and is never again.



would seem to be magic,

but there’s more

in the mix

that is ken.


Uniqueness to fitness

to which one must witness

is the dance, in which chance,

  never ends.


I have some gladness,

a tinge of some sadness,

in the once-ness

that will come to all things.


I am one

in the once

of a whim.
