Reminder

Every flower reminds us
of the highest truth.
That is why we love to gaze
into the rose.
Love is what happens
in a heart that is merely awake,
when it isn't doing
anything else.
Millions of stars spilling
from that fragrant hollow,
like pollen.
O dear one, why do you
keep forgetting?
'Tat tvam asi.'
You are that.
