SILENCE

 

As the mind empties

So is it filled

Light and warmth

A rhythmic song

Often mistaken for silence

Silently withdrawing

 

Throughout the expansion

Realizing

The true essence of love

Realizing the fickle nature of truth

Realizing what is real?

What is unreal?

 

All the while

Acknowledging

What truly matters?

Can never be seen

It is felt

Only

 

Felt deeply

Personally

Intimately

And you know

This knowledge

This truth

 

Can never be explained

Tell me please

What does wild running water sound like?

What does it feel like?

The wet cool wind

Riding atop the water

 

As they run together

They are one

Dancing

Singing

The sounds please

The wind and the water

 

What does their song sound like?

What do they smell like?

Coolness

Cleanliness

Newness

Smells like life

 

Smells like that old problematic truth

All the while withdrawing

Throughout the expansion

Realizing the true essence of love

Running together

Singing together

 

The wind and the water

Love as one

Often mistaken for silence

As the mind empties

So is it filled

Love and truth

 

Running as one
