Creation leaves

no space for tedium

One is surely inventive

but in small change.

One does not seek,

has no goal, no ambition.

One already is

what one wants to be.

Fragrance of deep fulfilment

Lingering all through.

One absorbs the universe

in deep receptivity,


whatever is absorbed

in one’s sponge of imagination.

When one surpasses

self, only then

one is closest

the whirling Whole.
