Early

The morning thinness followed the dawn
Awareness stifled the stars
Being aware you are that
It’s scent feels strong under the lights

Gratefulness

To be grateful for all that appears in life, be it good or bad, is the way that illumines your path most brightly. You are the clear light of consciousness upon which all else appears. The lake is not perturbed by the crossing of a boat, as the true self is not perturbed by the movement of thought.
