Weekly Poems

That Beautiful Sea of Heart (11-8-15) Understand this well: The work of the mind belongs in the basement. Even if the mind becomes Plato in knowledge, It still remains outside of the palace.     The ecstasy of Love is a hundred thousand times better Than whole universes full of More...
This Is Expected (11/1/15) The mind is a road block on the journey, O son. The road is wide open; untie this bond, tear it, O son.   The mind is bondage; the heart a trick, a deceit; the soul, the cover and curtain. This road is hidden from all More...
