Days of absence, empty space, lonely space,
Space to celebrate
Freedom to explore
Silent sacred space
Vast space, to expand!
Days of fulfilling presence, of every longed desire,
Presence of relational connections.
And reaching out to stars.
Presence of learning,
Of breaking ones boundaries,
Of outgrowing self and everything else.
And return to that longing for
Something within chanting, neti-neti,
Not this, still not this!
