Be now a student
of light
and learn from crafty masters:

How to pull on the thread of being
and so
glitter
as a story
everyone knows

How to let your relaxation
become a hidden engine
that invites magic to roost
nearby

How to regard your shelves
of old misidentifications
as a library
exploding with golden knowledge
everyone craves

Give nothing away for free anymore
That was an illusion anyway
of an old kind of trying

What you do now
is becoming part of the world
like a landscape, a fact that
others build upon

Stand aside now
beauty
and become the mountain
of everything
you are not.
