How does one explain that the answers teach nothing at all Questions in place serve to cradle the truth as it falls Out of the dust it came Into the dust you know it will return Lessons in learning leave minds free to give and receive Memories like scars leave the impressions that live in our speech Out of the dust it came Into the dust you know it will return

The Grove 04:00
I found my way into the grove And now I know just where it goes The roots in the ground hold my bones The birds in the trees sing my soul The mirror reflects all that's shown If water is still the moon is shown The mind like a river knows no home But stillness i found inside that grove The sunlight it shines upon all things Without any thought of loss or gain The morning it comes and we can see The natural flow of night to day Just as I let go I receive The heart of this truth inside of me

She was born of autumns revery Body warm as copper kettle steam Eyes of honey, earth and evergreen Locks of twisted serpent dreams Conscience clear as watermelon rind Heart a swollen sweet potato vine Here and now she chases fireflies Empty sky, a quiet mind Empty sky, a quiet mind Clouds of thought dissolve in rhymes Empty sky, a quiet mind She reflects a vast simplicity Singing songs with natures symphony A child lives the sacred mystery With muddy boots and scarlet cheeks Conscience clear as watermelon rind Heart a swollen sweet potato vine Here and now she chases fireflies Empty sky, a quiet mind Empty sky, a quiet mind Clouds of thought dissolve in rhymes Empty sky, a quiet mind

Far away from the harvest The ground contains out greatest need A tiny shell that cracked and fell wed heaven and earth through a seed Long before gestation The body holds what no one sees A spark that hides somewhere inside wed heaven and earth through a dream Far away from the mother The child longs for things unseen We cut our ties and get lost so to find and wed heaven and earth at the seam Long before reaction The act is born of thoughts so deep The mind that's blind to the breathless time sets heaven and earth out of reach

Some may ask what do you mean When they hear but are not told But verse is like a mountain stream Without a drink it's hard to know Fruit falls from the vine But only when it's ready These words they are not mine They come when hearts are steady I can't speak to what is right Only that which makes me sing But a song is like the warmth of day You need not ask what does it mean Fruit falls from the vine But only when it's ready These words they are not mine They come when hearts are steady
