4 A.M.

4 a.m.
What is said in words
can be said without them.
But what arises
from stillness
has no name.
Why make these
useless distinctions
between silence and dancing,
waking and sleep?
Just let waves
of pure astonishment
play in the ocean
of your heart,
and whoever leaps out
like a breathless dolphin
dripping with moon splendor
is called 'Me.'
We only exist
for a moment, dear friend.
Be always willing
to plunge back
into the night.
