nonattachment

Waves of thoughts

About the many paths

Ebb and flow

On the shores of my awareness.

The sands of time shift

Through my mental grip

But remain the same.

The sun shines on it all,

Unaffected.

I woke up

In the middle of the night

And went looking

For all that I possessed.

I saw my thoughts

Coming and going as they pleased,

My children claiming

What I once thought was mine

And love escaping

Through my heart’s pocket.

Nothing I own is mine

When I have dissolved

Inside the mind of the divine.

So I went back to sleep,

Mineless.

I endlessly float

Into nothingness,

Because I severed my mind’s hands

And can no longer hold on to anything.
