Longing

I long for the dance. 
For the interplay between form and formlessness. 
To live and die with longing. 
To rebirth with a wisdom 
That belies my years. 

To care and to give. 
I am not seeking enlightenment or nirvana, 
I am seeking the world. 

Yes I would endure two thousand years of suffering 
For the ecstasy of my lovers kiss. 
For it is she who stills the mountains
And stems 
The oceans tide.
