Petals of Perception (a Poem)
Petals of Perception
Find the flower whose supple petals
possess the flair to bend with ease.
Watch them open to all phenomena
with simple innocence, setting life free.
Pluck a petal from this flower
to see existence flare forth as real.
Each diaphanous membrane breathes,
pulsates, sways, spirals and spills, until
every facet of all reality becomes
intimate ease and effortless skill,
to reveal the pearl of infinite freedom
the expansive essence of your deeper will.
