The Seed Market

Can you find another market like this?
with your one rose
you can buy a hundred rose gardens?
for one seed
you get a whole wilderness?
for one weak breath
the divine wind?
You've been fearful of being absorbed in the ground,
or drawn up by the air.
now your water bead lets go
and drops into the ocean,
where it came from.
It no longer has the form it had
but it is still water.
The essence is the same. 
This giving up is not a repenting.
It is a deep honoring of yourself.
When the ocean comes to you as a lover
marry at once,quickly,
for God's sake!
Don't postpone it!
Existence has no better gift.
No amount of searching
will find this.
A perfect falcon for no reason,
has landed on your shoulder
and become yours.
