Meditation On A Snail… - Poem by Mark Heathcote

What's learnt by living life Master Snail?
When you say possess less
Inherit more of the wind in your sail
And buoyancy to prevail.

When you say, be like brother Slug
Look he doesn't house himself in fear?
In fact, leave fear some trail to follow
And find yourself without, without fear.

Really, what's learnt by life Master snail?
Do tell. I ask sincerely - again.
How is the weight of the world removed?
How do I reach enlightenments Zen?

Ask, bother Turtle he just rolls in love
With a million waves against him, yet, he arrives
At the shore of his own, ancestors
By just following, alone his seven senses.

Master Snail this is no answer
… If it is not, then why do you still, persist?
Asking me a snail the meaning of life
Isn't the meaning of life existence?

Existence is a question of love.
The power of your love is life's existence
Eternal, existence is to be loved.
With or without, loves undying cogence.
