Roots and shoots

Roots seek the core, shoots climb to the sky

When the seed of realization sprouts

Can one do both?

Health and lustre of the visible

Depends on the depths roots grow

Into the invisible, there may not be much to see

But guided by an unceasing urge

Roots will one day hit waters of gold

Matching the beauty of the golden sun

As it is being pulled into the bosom of the horizon

When deeply entangled with the roots of life

The tender shoots of love will remain forever green
