The brilliant
White sun
Blazing without

We are like that

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

Inexhaustible source of illuminating

Opening and letting
Moment to moment

Crystal clear
Clearly awake
Aware and intelligent


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

Dignified and awesome
Like a sky blue
