Ah. {Poem} ~ Adam Arthure

Via on Mar 20, 2012

The brilliant
White sun
Blazing without
Hesitation

We are like that

From looking at the sun’s majesty
To realizing that we are that

Inexhaustible source of illuminating
Compassion

Opening and letting
Go
Moment to moment

Crystal clear
Clearly awake
Aware and intelligent

Dis-own
Dissolve
Dissolve

Arise
Just a light touch
Touch and go

Kiss and go
Go gold and brilliant orange
Knot of eternity

Crystal lotus
Turquoise diamond

Now is a sudden
Flash of lightning
Thunder crackling
Rolls off a
Rumbling
Boom

Dignified and awesome
Like a sky blue
Lake
