I go this way, then that way for no reason
just enjoying the feeling of movement

wash clear, be free
Empty of any willfulness, the energy
which moves me moves the wind,
the wave, everything
I am all desire, surging vital current
restless surface, silent depth
unfathomable depth, unfathomable
power, power without point or purpose,
only this, only this — to be
