AT ANOTHER POINT...
Posted on Apr.07.2009 @ 11:17PM EDT by chontri

At some point, you may be a poet who write a poem,
and you may need a reader to read it.
At another point, you may be the poem itself,
and the poem mingles with the poetry of heaven and earth.

At some point, you may be a musician who composes a piece of music,
and you may need a listener to listen to it.
At another point, you may be the music itself,
and the music synchronizes with the symphony of heaven and earth.

At some point, you may be a painter who draws a painting
and you may need a viewer to view it.
At another point, you may be the painting itself,
and the painting mingles with the beauty of heaven and earth.

At some point, you may be a dancer who does a dance,
and you may need a watcher to watch it.
At another point, you may be the dance itself,
and the dance synchronizes with the dance of heaven and earth.
