The door is water.
The doorknob, the wind.

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


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

are one and the same.

how to fly like that,
how to stop in midair
until we know the way.
