Look at love


Look at love

how it tangles

with the one fallen in love.

Look at spirit

how it fuses with earth

giving it new life.

Why are you so busy

with this or that or good or bad

pay attention to how things blend.

Why talk about all

the known and the unknown

see how the unknown merges into the known.

Why think separately

of this life and the next

when one is born from the last.

Look at your heart and tongue

one feels but deaf and dumb

the other speaks in words and signs.

Look at water and fire

earth and wind

enemies and friends all at once.

The wolf and the lamb,

the lion and the deer,

far away yet together.

Look at the unity of this

spring and winter

manifested in the equinox.

You too must mingle my friends

since the earth and the sky

are mingled just for you and me…
