When life rushes by deceptively slow

meditation-1936(1)

When life rushes by deceptively slow
and the next moment happened an aeon ago,
When stones and graves like flowers grow
and the sand of a desert like rivers flow,
When the door of a house is its solitary window
and the only bridge is that of a rainbow,
When the broad road is narrow
and the deep well is shallow,
When the target hits the arrow
and the clouds fall from the snow,
When the wall dances on a shadow
and joy brings more sorrow,
When the foe is the best fellow
and experience makes you more callow,
When the end is now
and past – tomorrow,
Then remember and know:
“As above, so below.”
