Open landscape

Open landscape

Once you lay down your barriers

your soul becomes an open landscape

where all four winds can blow as they will

instead of walls and gates and towers

there’s an endless stretch of grass

swaying under the rolling clouds

you’d wish for more than wild fields

but the new town that will surge

must not be built in stone

but grown and woven from the soil and the forest

so that you do not divide yourself from your very own nature

now that you have understood you are not a limited mind

but a boundless soul that stretches into everything that exists

and as a loving creator, you cannot part from your own creation
