Be with those who help your being
Be with those who help your being.Don’t sit with indifferent people, whose breathcomes cold out of their mouths.Not these visible forms, your work is deeper.A chunk of dirt thrown in the air breaks to pieces.If you don’t try to fly,and so break yourself apart, you will be broken open by death,when it’s too late for all you could become.Leaves get yellow. The tree puts out fresh rootsand makes them green.Why are you so content with a love that turns you yellow?
Ode 2865 Trans. Coleman Barks
Look at Love...
Look at Love...how it tangleswith the one fallen in lovelook at spirithow it fuses with earthgiving it new lifewhy are you so busywith this or that or good or badpay attention to how things blend
