solemnity

look before you leap,
the lesson of the cat.
leap before you look,
the lesson of the dog.
leap, leap and leap,
the lesson of the bird.
dear god, surrounded
as i am by such wisdom,
how did i ever learn
to sit so unblinkingly
like something dead
while my heart beats
and beats and beats?

  1. one day i will finally answer myself about whether our human ability to deny ourselves is proof of spiritual intelligence or whether it is proof of the opposite, that is, spiritual insensibility.
