Full Moon Poetry

Exciting but scary by Nuit, Art of 4 Elements Poetry

many are called but few choose to follow the sign on your forehead says 'fragile - do not touch'

exciting but scary...

the daylight covered in the full-moon shadow mermaid's song across the seas calling explorers to dare to descend into the centre of their very-selves

exciting but scary...

the sacred secret hidden amongst ornaments, symbols, caves, under-water corals, silence, deep within your head

exciting but scary...

discovering the limits of the Self facing the Pure - within 'I', within Acts of Nature, Act of God

exciting but scary...

demolishing, dismantling, refusing all-that-is-not-real and what is - in this shady world?

exciting but scary...

Wu Wei, Art of 4 Elements Poetry by Nuit

flow of Life governed by Tao flow of change

spontaneous natural effortless acting through non-action

connecting with Earth and Full Moon and Sun through Being

not inert or lazy or passive but swimming swiftly within the current merging Life with Tao

quiet and watchful not-interfering receptive alert directly connected

acting without action trusting detached without desire spontaneous natural effortless Living
