Without Desire

Swimming    
in muddy waters        
       
We search for treasures        
       
Beneath a veil        
of golden silt        
       
Assailed and tossed        
       
Clinging tendrils        
in shifting winds        
       
Seeking to recover        
something lost        
       
A quill of thirsty desires        
draws our focus        
   
from higher    
 
             to lower        
       
                   But the universe conspires        
                   lending her ink        
       
                   Agilely guiding        
                   the verses we write        
       
                   The travails of our labor        
                   shall birth First light        
       
                   Revealing the face        
                   sans birth above death        
       
                   The face of no face        
                   our luminous Self        
       
                   The treasure we sought        
                   acquiring true wealth        
       
                   Ne’er again to compete        
                   with straggling Desire        
       
                   Who sinks entangled        
                   in her own quagmire
