Stillness, then silence, then random speech,
then knowledge, intoxication, annihilation;
Earth, then fire, then light,
coldness, then shade, then sunlight.
Thorny road, then a path, then the wilderness.
River, then ocean, then the shore;
contentment, desire, then Love.
Closeness, union, intimacy;
closing, then opening, then obliteration,
separation, togetherness, then longing;
signs for those of real understanding
who find this world of little value.
