let the river carry me away

The April wind

Is stronger than the hummingbird

And makes her work hard 

To get that nectar

Some days life is sure a chore


Life; the noise

Between the two

Long silences. 


The day will come when I pack up 

And just walk over the summit 

To disappear forever. 

The day will come when I push the boat 

Out into the current 

And let the river carry me away. 

Even now, tonight, I might 

Reach out and touch the stars 

One at a time.

Wind in the cave:
movement in stillness.
Power in silence.
— Deng Ming-Da

Sell your cleverness and buy bewilderment.

Love needs no reason to exist other than itself.

Things are as they are. Looking out into the universe at night, we make no comparisons between right and wrong stars, nor between well and badly arranged constellations. 
-Alan Watt
