A Thing Free of Spirit

670px-Tame-a-Free-Spirit-Step-01

You are not enclosed within your bodies,

nor confined to houses or fields.

That which is you dwells above the mountains

and roves with the wind.

It is not a thing that crawls into the sun for warmth

or digs holes into darkness for safety.

But a thing free of spirit

that envelops the earth

and moves into the ether.
