A poem

This journey begins
when we hold in our hands
the universal offering
of emptiness

Bitter murk of the world
settles down in our lungs
where clarity transforms
it to light

Pale light of the altar
is soft on our eyes
that have seen
the worst side of man

We reclaim the feeling
of joy in our soul
revisiting dreams
of old playgrounds

When a reservoir of love
overflows in our hearts
it will shine
to the rest of the world
