Where to next?

Where to next?
To love the world, the whole world,
Every inch and crevice
I abandoned, I skimmed over,
Now that Iíve returned.
I never loved the world before.
 
First I stood outside;
Now I stand within.
Feel the wind through every cell
And let it break you
With no barrier,
No wanting,  
Only moving, taking in.
No distance Ė now youíre in the middle
Spinning in
The center of the whirlwind,
Bearing the severance,
Forgetting rememberance,
Letting everything come and go.
In this whirlwind we donít speak,
We donít think, we donít act,
We only dance. We only dance
Through every alley, weave a thread
Of gold until the whole wide worldís
Ensnared.
This state Ė no fear.
Death is íround the corner
But we keep dancing here.
 
The desert sands are myriads of colors,
Melting, glistening, and dancing around you.
Nothing stays in place, it always moves,
In perfect coordination.
It is you, your mindís creation,
A reflection.
Why to look within
When you can look without
And see all of yourself?
 
Every song becomes its fullness;
Words have disappeared.
Words are notes, and all is music,
Poetry, a flow.
 
I could talk about the details all forever;
Truly I donít know
What land Iím walking in;
I donít ask myself that, no.   † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † †
