Auspicious bright day

Under a gentle sun
tree leaves flicker in the breeze,
lone clouds mirror in a silent pond,
distant hills vanish in the haze.
Timelessness amidst impermanence,
a bright serenity,
a calm understanding,
and there is no more toil or struggle,
Content with whom I am,
for a moment, I share mind with ancient sages
for a moment, wherever I am
the sun shines upon my inner garden.

Marcus Antoninus
(inspired by many ancient sages)

Philosopher, poet and lover of life.

    1. Then, we are two! It happens to me, every now and then, that for a moment I achieve something of a deep understanding. During those rare moments of insight there is no more toil or struggle. It is often the case, though, that the enlightenment disappears short after it came. I am working on making these changes more permanent. It is very hard work!
