Good Medicine

Unbelief is good medicine, undoing belief
     better:
all beings free to leave their being
     and enter silence.

The nameless tree with its forest
     of green,
the endless expanse called
     sky, beaks and

feathered wings with their urgent
     conversations;
all around, the light that sets the vital body
     to humming,

and the dark of re-creation:
     the world held for us in promise
until it is loosened from
     our thinking.

– From the unpublished manuscript A Day of Light, by Andrew Colliver
