eye

this was given to me today. i love it.

Look at your eyes. They are small.
but they see enormous things.

Be relentless in the looking,
because you are the one you seek

Birds make great sky-circles
of their freedom.

How do they learn it?

They fall, and falling,
they are given wings

you knock at the door of reality,
shake your thought-wings,
loosen your shoulders,
and open

...forget safety.
Live where you fear to live.
Destroy your reputation. Be notorious.
I have tried prudent planning long enough.
From now on, I'll be mad.

No more words. Hear only the
voice within.

This dance is the JOY of existence.
