Waves of astonishment
surge from the ocean
of the heart's silence
turning each perception
to an act of surrender.
Every breath you
breathe out is
an offering.
Every inhalation
is a gift of kindness
from someone who
loves you very deeply,
more than the sun
loves the moon.
This is how the world
is created and
un-created each moment
for the sake of delight.
How long will you resist
the ancient yearning?
