Most hold an image of themselves
believed in need of conservation.
Argument is pointless.
Gradual and sudden are not different,
but merely variations of each other.
Effort or effortless?
The challenge to climb this mountain
requires doing nothing at all.
Who can understand
I plant neither one foot on
nor take one step off of it?
When the rain falls,
each drop is a suspended ocean
filled with the mysterious essence of
Folks run for shelter while
I stand with my mouth to the sky,
bathed in my own water.
