spring like an elephant in the sky

happy spring equinox…


Thoughts, like elephants, leap into the sky,

The bird of impulse is trapped in a net,

The horse of energy is saddled,

The song of the cuckoo has arrived from the north,

Wisdom shines in the realm of nonduality,

The dance of discriminating wisdom takes place.

When the sun and moon are imprisoned,

The castle of sectarian bitterness crumbles.

The flute of eternal joy is heard.

~Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche Unpublished poem, composed May 20, 1972
