517: That Time in Gion

Find renewal daily in the ordinary. Reconcile with the risk of correction. Seek astonishment in the world and by that nectar be thriven. Cleverness yields no such nourishment.

The span, it provokes as ever. Calls you onward, inward.

O presence and depth, unhesitant further.

Enthral the skin
Drench the mind in peace,
the soul in Ecstasy.

508: Space

How long you have denied the mind it’s quiet and the skin it’s thrill. The gentle heart, enthralled and contained, the space to replevin and elate.

I could leave Earth and soar the open sky for the rest of my days. Hurl toward the brink untroubled, drifting home on a stream. I could circle the clouds for eternity, calm, free and satisfied. Pause to bathe in the cold suns magnificence, and drink the breeze of heavens sighs.
But I could not love you more.

It’s so quiet up here, and peaceful. How very little most of what I’ve been concerned with actually reaches me. How much I’ve taken for granted.
