Why does


Shock anymore?


As despair and exhilaration


What nameless expression

Stays on the face?


When worst fears come true,

Wildest dreams turn real,

When success and failure

Feels the same,


The heart,

Burning and frozen

Stony and melting

Has handled it all.


Neither the crest

Nor the trough,

Neither barbs

Nor silky words,


Nothing affects,

Yet everything is absorbed.

For the heart

Has expanded.


A being zen-like

Looking at the world,

With love that expands

With each living breath.
