the teacher appears

Doves sing down the sun

Chickens sing it up

Stewards of their gifts

 ◊

Drifting down river

I see a man swimming

Hard against the flood

With precious breath he calls to me

Other way brother

 ◊

I found three stones

By a pond in moonlight

Three ways before me

The Teacher appeared that time

Saying

First you must love Truth
