Seek a stream
that you can trust to flow into
for some relief from the weight
to gently push you in the right direction
help you along
a little




Nulla di piu' triste che avere una vita
e non sapere cosa farsene

seduto sul bordo di un fiume
di pensieri
il filo di un respiro regolare
tra le dita della mente
per non cadere

ti osservi
e non sei piu' tu

This flame

Burning out fast
Or perhaps not fast enough
Enclosed and contained
Forever unable
To break free
To start a fire and make a difference
Unfulfilled promise

What I would like to tell my children

It is those who take upon themselves
to choose their own path
Who must learn to focus the mind's eye
Form a clear view of what has been
And a vision of what may be
Both here and deeper down
Most are happy to wade aimlessly in the shallows
With their blurry sight
Or stray, with no sense of direction
Or simply follow

There is more

Lago

Pioggia e vento non sono né bene né male
È sufficiente aspettare con pazienza
Finché torna la quiete
Specchio
Organismo liquido
Vivo, nel ciclo del dare e ricevere
La tua forma è definita da ciò che ti circonda

Mountain

You do not conquer the mountain.
The mountain conquers you.
If you show respect, it will teach you self respect.
It will punish your arrogance and reward your perseverance and humility.
It harbours life, and will take lives.
Ask it questions of yourself. Its challenge will reveal you to yourself.
It will give you the solitude you seek, and the silence, and timeless strength.
