Ocean drawn out from Itself
Through will of sun and wind
Scatters far upon the land
New cycles to begin.
Vapor drifts through timelessness
Not knowing where it's bound
Forgetting, too, from where it's come
Not knowing of the ground.
That lies in wait to challenge it
And block its natural flow
Landing first on frozen peaks
And seeing self as snow.
'Till force of love whose call is strong
Sends agents to the scene
And gravity and sun combine
To free from colds demesne.
That once again soul drop may drift
Its journey to resume
Back to the Spirit Ocean grand
Now new form to assume.
Of tiny streamlet, cold and fast
Not contemplating aught
But tumbling blindly down steep slopes
Devoid of deeper thought.
And now to brook of greater size
Less reckless in its flow
Wondering what lies ahead
Its route it wants to know.
To stream size now has soul drop grown
And flows with increased breadth
Sensing self as something more
Still yearing for more depth.
'Till finally with mighty flow
The river it becomes
Flowing singlemindedly
The deepest depths it plumbs.
Advancing eagerly to Source
Whence long ago it sprang
It dreams of life beyond its banks
Far from the yin and yang.
Where Self contains all as Itself
As individual waves
Dance for a while then return
Into the sacred Nave.
