"Birds make great sky-circles
of their freedom.
How do they learn it?
They fall, and falling,
they are given wings."

Truth's Illumination
One glowing flame can
light a hundred candles,
and then a hundred times
a hundred more. I pray to
be such a flame, my illusions
giving fuel to what is real.

Light recognizes light,
and leaps to meet it.
May this sweet contagion
increase until light prevails,
and we all live in the
glow of truth’s illumination.
