The mind is like the ocean, The universe, Full of paradoxes, And traps, And labyrinthine paths, That lead to nowhere. We are wise to be wary of it, Yet seek to befriend it. For it allows us to know consciousness, To glimpse that formless energy, That is ever present, Unchanging, One with the waves inducedContinue reading “The mind”
Vast as the sea, Powerful and mysterious, With unknown depths and wonders, Unpredictable and tempestuous. It calls, it captivates, enraptures, But never says “I am yours.” And so we long for it, Awestruck by it’s power and majesty.

Darkness invites light, Night, theContinue reading “Mystical”
Each petal, Precious, pixilated light, And color.
Row, Row against the current. Do not let the tide Take you over. Though your arms grow tired, And beg for respite, Row until you find The one you have always been seeking. Row until you are laid bare upon the shore, And your soul unites with the truth Of who and all that youContinue reading “Row”
The road is bumpy, Full of potholes and misdirection. It is understandable to become discouraged, To lose your way, To not want to ask for directions anymore.
