golden cosmic wisdom water cannot pour from empty cups. tibet, i see you. [poem]

silenced and still
upon the plateau
can you imagine what it’s like? just. beings. just. being.
vessels of golden cosmic wisdom water
ready to enlighten

        who can pour from an empty cup?

man wants just the taking, of the taking of the man
not leaving lone magnificence, righteous rights
wisdom is free for all, and within
just beings. just. being.

        who can pour from an empty cup?

without place to fill their jugs
without sacred drops to drink, and
without free flowing rivers to reach the rest of the world

silence and still
upon the plateau
can you imagine what it’s like?
just. beings. just. being.
vessels of golden cosmic wisdom water
ready to enlighten

        who can pour from an empty cup?
        acceptance, equanimity, somehow patience comes
        tibet, i see you. mercy, please offer us water. we have thirst.
man, give us back our water wells, our rivers, truths, source.
WE ARE READY but man wants just the taking, of the taking of the man
not leaving lone magnificence, righteous rights wisdom is free for all

and within

silent and still
upon the plateau
can you imagine what it’s like?
