Poems


from 'Pieces of Water'




Fish

 

 

As a fish is 

To the ocean

You are

To love.

 


So swim

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pieces of Water

Peace be with you.

Peace be with me.

Let me have what I need.

Let you have what you need.

Let there not be a winning side.

Let it settle out as the ocean does,

WIth waves that break

And recede 

And break again.

Let us not hold back the tide

Or force it ahead of its time.

Let us let go of any divisions

Between you and me. 

Let us be equal

Like two pieces of water

In the same ocean.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Five Things



1. The path is eternal.

2. Everything is the path.

3. You are always on the path.

4. You cannot lose your way.

5. Knowing this helps.
