new year’s resolutions: snow

Ne jugez pas.
~ Arnaud Desjardins

 

I will learn to fall with a quiet
mistaken for silence.

I will cover the world
according to its contours.
I will not discriminate.

 

 

Under my multiple singularities
all will share
a common shelter.

 

 

 

Even at night,
I will reflect
until everything around me glows.
By day, I will either soften
all light, and be a womb
luminous,
or return the sun’s strength
and refract the world to glory.

 

 

When you don’t expect it—
because I am confused with winter’s cold—
I will insulate
& bring you warmth.

 

 

I will not fight
coming and going.
Becoming water,
I’ll learn to be liquid.

 

Thanks to the Cassandra Pages’ Beth Adams for her selection from French Advaita Vedanta Master Arnaud Desjardins.
