The Tao Is Tao (76)

#78






                                                            76

                                                  Enlightenment
                                               is to be like a child
                                              who reaches out to
                                              an exquisite bubble
                                              floating before her,
                                               mesmerizing her
                                            with reflections of light,
                                               and when it bursts
                                                    at her touch,
                                                      she gazes
                                              in shock and wonder
                                                          at its
                                                    nothingness
                                                 in the empty air.
