Question: is something causing cosmos to appear?

Question: is something causing cosmos to appear?
I really ask—do I?—do not only appear.

See the crystal growing of all things as answer,
A perfect inverse of platitude that appears.

The more I timepass inside thinking's deep flatness,
The more wine signed mystery on my doorstep appears.

From where has everything already been let in?
That is home, not the perspective where it appears.

Funny philosophers, thinking thought as a thing,
Not image in a mirror where each thing appears.

The summit of this life is its not having been.
To be standing there now we suddenly appear.

Be happy only to hear, not catch Nicola,
One who not once to himself will ever appear.

I really love this one--especially wine signed mystery on the doorstep
also if you read it fast it's winged mystery

Kvond:

Not phantic, but paschontal does the shimmer undo,
Like slack sarcophagus mantles lain
Down skin reembering
In the mirrors of loved one's eyes.
The illusion of appearance.

I love this example of the illusion of appearance, kvond

That to the soul, it is a book of the picture of the dark mole of Thine" (Hafiz)
