I go into the night
just outside, within the gates
to the deep dark pool of black jade
The moon dances on the water
The water is cool like stone
I wade in untill knees deep and then, dive in...
Here, I lay afloat in black jade
one with the sky
The stars sparkle above me and I float in the mirror,
I am in the space
I am in the silence
strange, seemingly weightless
all I hear is the water's hiss from afar and my breath
all I feel is my rise and fall in cold stone
all I see is space in the black jade
I am at peace.
