Aside

Glimpses of divine effulgent Sun
make even the light of this world
seem dark.

After the heart
stumbles into these hidden mysteries
a moment’s separation
becomes unbearable.

Yet still I pass
most of my moments
in darkness and separation,
lacking whatever it takes
to stay within the light.

Poison and remedy reside
within the same cup,
a cup from which I drink
each passing day.
