Ways of Being


I saw the sun, inside the sea,

and it was staring up at me.

In every ripple, a reflection,

of the one that is way up high.


I stared into the sea, and saw,

my own face looking up in awe.

In every rolling wave a wisp,

of the one that rests just above.


I offered my heart for caring,

for one in need of my sharing.

In their smile that widened a sky,

I saw my own joy come alive.


I took my fill and wanted more.

In craving, all else I would ignore.

Indeed, I was full in my finding,

but want, is always a hungry swine.
