When the mind is quiet

peaceful blue pond


When the mind is quiet, awareness rises

the sounds get louder and louder

without label nor bias our sensations brighten

there are no more minutes nor hours


All doubts disappear, as well as ideas

that we hold to be true for our "I'

the endless sky clears, and a few happy tears

wipe the grains of sand out of our eyes


There is no "I" to know it's alive

there is no "me" to differentiate from "you"

the illusion of success and failure is gone

and suddenly there's even no truth


There's nobody to want or achieve... 

there's nobody to want any change...

everything's perfect - just as it is

even as nothing turns back into space.
