Then Understand


Rainbows of hope endlessly span in the ether vast
Effortlessly redoubling in voids' empty caverns
Every thought entwined, lacking innate freedom

Illumination grandiosely illustrated to a select audience
Captivated in the auspicious moment of success
Impressing no one with odious jargon
And theses absorbed through ever pouring over scrolls
A mind inundated with alien concepts

Anew the intricate webs influence the inner psyche
Arrows carelessly aimed, fired at Cupid's aura
Finding a willing entrance to a yearning, aching heart

Embracing the agreement to eternal life in the unconditional love offered
Confucius: "I hear, I know. I see, I remember. I do, I then understand."

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
