Children to the mountain

1

Domination
is never a dance.
It is a displacement
of love.

Partnership
allows for space
and in that space
room for dreaming.

This place,
this planet wants a partner.
We know this.

2

The door is felt.
It is made of felt.
It is a soft door.

The door is water.
The doorknob, the wind.

It opens with the slightest push.
But first you have to find it.

3

The mountain
has a valley inside it
that is dreaming
for us.

It is dreaming that we will
see through it someday.

The mountain
doesn't want to be a mountain
forever.

4

Dragonfly, hovering,
four wings a-blur,
you and your dream body
are one and the same.
Teach us
how to fly like that,
how to stop in midair
until we know the way.
