**Freedom’s Witness**


butterfly

If I want the butterfly
to land on me,
Then I proclaim
that it is not free.

For if I want
what is not,
Then how can I Love
and let it just be?

Openness is
The only solution.
For it extends Freedom
In all directions.

If it Dances,
I let it Dance.
If it Sits,
I let it Sit.

If it Rests
On my Being,
I let Life Rest,
No need to capture
What has been seen.

Why would I Cling,
To that
Which was Meant to be free?
Why would I want
What is not,
As if I could
Somehow complete me.

Openness,
The remedy in Emptiness;
Extending to all of Life
I Am Freedom’s Witness.
