Just One

One seed of love
that branches out in hope
of life unending
at first not even
a becoming particle
of an idea's bare conception

yet life is born anew
because one seed abided
and just grew into itself
unhampered by the mind
unhindered by emotion's waves
floating, nurtured endlessly
by heart

One seed that grows
below all thought
an unseen link
in chains of DNA
that settles in the heart
of every cell of life in form

a chain that can't be broken
for all the mental variations
built upon this theme
of one alone
for truly one alone
is all we ever really need
to live and love

Just one
that's all it ever takes
just one . . .
