Nature's Hook

Rating: 5.0

Beneath the superficial forms;
is beauty.

Beneath the thoughts shouting I understand;
is understanding.

Beneath the clamour of efforts;
is effortlessness.

Behind all movements;
is stillness.

Behind all sounds;
is silence.

Behind all endeavour;
is love.

Diving deep
to the source
of consciousness
we find ourselves
and realise;
we need no finding.

Coat, hat and umbrella
stay on nature's hook;
our home
becomes infinite.
