The Chase

The mind wants so badly

to understand

this mystery.

Each person on your path

holds a clue.

Each quiet moment

offers the chance of insight.

The mind tries

to weave them together

in some form

that make sense to it,

But

this world

is not meant

for sense

and understanding.

This world is meant

for wonder and awe.

As soon as the mind

picks up the trail-

the Universe changes

course or climbs

up and out of reach.

But

as soon

as you sit still

and open

your heart with each breath,

the Universe

can no longer resist you

and surrounds

you with its infinite embrace.
