Counsel

Do not seek the counsel
of one who answers
all your questions.
Seek the silence of one
in whose stillness
no questions arise, whose
fragrance draws you
to the nectar fountain
gushing from groundlessness
in your heart's deep core.
Scatter your petals
on those brown feet.
For every step you take
toward the Friend,
those feet have taken
ten thousand toward you.
You have come here just
to lose yourself
in that bow.
