Variation on the Lonely Impulse of Delight

We don’t need to seek a solitary place;
To be without preconceived ideas is the real solitude

Khongtrul Lodro Thaye

Between a rock and a hard place
Platitudes of shock
When attitude unleashed to wilds
And tempers cooked crisp
To be without preconceived ideas
Is the real solitude

Flatten each thought as it rises
Mind-hut panoramic view
Of vast sky all the time
Problems dissolve
World the world is always with us
Each jewel
A singular perfection
No need for a solitary place
The world the world
AH, the world
