love’s fragrant garden

if you can’t reach
love’s fragrant garden
your awakening
is meaningless

the whole point
of the journey
is to dive
into the deepest ocean
and drown

and in that drowning
become so tender
and open
that the world
passes through you
and nothing sticks
because you have dissolved
and there is nothing left
of you

awakening is the first step
surrendering your self
to the world
over and over
is the next.
