Poem on life, our struggles, and a sense of hope for the future.


Wet from bathing in love's vast domain,
each step drops fall to the ground
evaporating into an ever-present concealing haze.
The inescapable and pressing unknown.

The crushing heartache of love.
The agonizing chasm of compassion.
The blinding starlight of imperfection.
The beautiful crucifixion of memory.

In sin all suffer and in truth all mourn.
In pain sit molding, embedded among eons
of ancestral soil and push roots
deep as mountains, seeking peace in death.

All seek in death the cleansing rain of life,
piece by piece unearthed and made clean.
Break Spring's infinite horizon and emerge -
shivering, exposed, screaming in our mothers arms.

I am awake.


Awakening, Samsara
