Disappearing into You

Dharma Mountain, August 11, 2019

The leaves of the aspen tree
shivering in the summer wind,
colors given by the sun,
a million shades of green.

The pale greens, lime, mint and sage
the bright emerald and blinking jade
the warm olive and the dark seaweed
the blacks hiding in the shade.

Lucky are those aspen leaves
that receive the highest light
burning away all colors and form
until they disappear in white.

Beloved,
let me be that leaf
that shivers and disappears
into you.

There are different dimensions unknown to you.
Open yourself to that which is beyond you.
