FIVE MORTAL PLEASURES

I. PERSPECTIVE

Rising up from old mistrust
there’s nowhere to be anymore
but out beyond where we are, present
at the opening of the worlds,

star fathoming, spinning without a wobble,
far seeing who we really are:
blooming, painless, free; your hardships
as beautiful as turbulence seen

from the top of the sacred world; insight
opening so far around ourselves
we feel ourselves to be beyond our sight, so intimately
unknown all separation ends.

What joy to keep
just patiently rising.
