A Clear Sky

30 Mar 2017 life

Enlightenment
is like a clear sky,
pure and cloudless.

We may experience it
in the gaps
between our cloudy thoughts,
our dreams of identity,
fear, and craving.

And we may widen those gaps,
through patient concentration,
seeing what obscures them
as the phantoms they are.

Most likely,
we will never see that cloudless sky
in its pristine entirety,
but we can be blessed
by the taste of it,
and the grace of knowing
it is there.
