The Universe is Screaming Enlightenment

Standing in the lake with Evan

Waves roaring

Facing into the wind and water

Potent conversation

Powerful forces at play

Or work

He says to me, almost shouting

Because the waves and the wind are so loud

"That star is pointing to enlightenment!

That cloud is pointing to enlightenment!

It's like the Universe is screaming enlightenment!"

And for some reason it's so hard for people to see and hear

We build up defenses

And forget that we are infinite

We believe that we are small and powerless

When, in fact, the opposite is true

Clear, starry night, screaming enlightenment

Or at least whispering it gently

Either way, I wish I could hear it
