If I Wish To See ~ I must be like water

If I wish to see
I must open my eyes
Must open my hands and release my death grip
on my assumptions

I must dial my perception filters back to zero
Must make the walls of my world transparent
I must be like water. . .

How strange
that the water in this lake is transparent
Yet holds the reflection of the sky

No
Not hold
Nor capture the image of the flying geese
The reflection lasts only a moment
and then its gone

To reflect
To truly see
I must be like water

  1. Reblogged this on A. Lawrence and commented:
    Still
    Silent
    Valuable of reflection and resources at my own cost with no return

    When the time comes
    Rushing
    Carving
    Moving valuable pieces and places around me

    In the end
    Restoring
    Restful
    Replenishing

    Not nearly as good, but it is what I took away from such a painting written in words.
