Nature of the Self

Earth dissolves in Water
             Water disappears on Fire
                           Fire is blown off of Wind
Nothing is left to be understood

It makes no difference
      whether I am here
           or on Mars or Venus

I am clinging to Earth
           In my mind at least
                         in the middle of this

Feyhan Hellum
