For Warmth

I hold my face in my two hands.

No, I am not crying.

I hold my face in my two hands

to keep the loneliness warm–

two hands protecting,

two hands nourishing,

two hands preventing

my soul from leaving me

in anger.

~ Thich Nhat Hanh

You are That

Soul of all souls, life of life – you are That

Seen and unseen, moving and unmoving – you are That

The road that leads to the City is endless;

Go without head or feet

And you’ll already be there.

What else could you be? – you are That.   ~ Rumi
