The Heart of silence

 

"Who sees the self becomes the Self."

Katha Upanishad (800-400 BCE)

 

 

 

Being true

 

Silence sings

 

beyond all things

 

In the depths of its song 

 

is

 

the knowing of the unstruck gong

 

The glowing timeless knowing of all change

 

The stillness among the waves

 

You are That

 

already home

I don't know how you do it, but somehow you always have the essence of your subject and it's your two final lines that have it and I feel the calm that belongs to your poetry.
