This is beautiful, Serenity. I love it.... it feels very "raw"... or like the "core".... does that make any sense? I'm not exactly sure how to say it.... I'm sorry. Anyway, it's a wonderful poem

"Thus shall ye think of all this fleeting world:
A star at dawn, a bubble in a stream;
A flash of lightning in a summer cloud,
A flickering lamp, a phantom, and a dream."
-from the Diamond Sutra, translated by : A. F. Price -- found in Teachings of The Buddha, edited by Jack Kornfield
