A poem of similar form here on Medium (thank you Michelle Muses), reminded me of this past work. My first inspired poetic work actually.

It can be read through, on the left or right, the capping phrase or in its entirety.

Encountering Tara

Open hearts, Minds seen
Blissful confusion springs forth

Courage to explore, Fear to discover
Parsing new realities

Intimacy, So raw the hurt
Timeless longing

Reality, Reality
Oh the vines of entanglement

Gifts given, Haunting gratitude
Onward

Monk Enō
