Reader Reflections

by Lastrain

I have searched a long time.
At last, just at the edge of myself,
I catch glimpses of a larger Me, smiling,
most often through other people's eyes.
Sweet kisses' edgelessness.
Sweet dreams' unbearable glimpses of boundless love.
The Homeland at last....

Some time ago a word stream came to me in the night.
"Beneath the surface to the desert dream
is a warm river where our roots mingle and merge."
Some time later I found out that the largest living thing
in the world is a grove of aspens in Colorado.
One root.

These two thoughts take my breath.
I no longer care so much about enlightenment.
This breathlessness is enough.
