Poem: Freedom of Light

Light

The character and quality

Of light

Influences the way

We perceive everything

In the mysterious night

Even our closest companion

Can appear as a sinister demon

In the brightest of lights

Even an inveterate murderer

Could appear as a saint

Or Bodhisattva

We are all

Demons and saints

Bodhisattvas and monsters

Sun and moon

Rolled into One

Choose either

And you choose them both

Choose neither

And you transcend them both

A sparrow sipping water

From a spring marsh

Can only be quenched

By the freedom of light
