soaring

when you learn to unlearn
what you think you know
the truth will learn you

like an arrow learns it’s bow
stretched back and taught
an unlimited inhalation
an unlimited invitation

do not worry about the shot

if you fear release
you will not know peace
but the guiding archer knows
where you’ll go
when you leave the bow

the power of the air
gushing past your body
gravity becomes your lover
and beckons you like Parvati

the target, so small, so far
impossible for a mortal
but you are no mortal
you are the arrow
released from the bow
soaring
