Universal Chess

Zen aptitude
in a chess game,
makes all the difference,
when all of the pieces
are rearranged.

Moving from one space
to another upon the board,
weaving an intricate pattern
of trails along the way,
until only the fortunate
players remain.

Neither luck, nor coincidence
factor into this divine equation –
only grace and mercy from Above,
as an invisible hand guides the pieces
of the cosmos into place.
A chess board is a microcosm
of the grand scale and design
of the macrocosm.
