Embracing Emptiness

13 Sep 2017 life

Embracing emptiness
is not like succumbing
to nothingness.

It is cleaning the closet
of the mind,
until it is a clear space,
like an open sky
through which clouds of thought
may come and go,
without lingering,
without clutter.

It is like standing
in an open field,
inspiring in its grandeur,
and pregnant
with possibilities.
