flowers take up the space     within me
to such an                 extent
so much so that when I walk along the path
i get
lost
inside the flat lands
touching so many wild flowers

i don’t mean to          carry so much of their scent with me
I keep reminding myself that they are my
emptiness
that whispers so many teachings
that I can overlook the weeds that have grown within me
that this ache I feel
is nothing
compared to the fullness of things
