Some days I want to lie with ants,
watch their extraordinary ‘ordinary’ lives,
I want to be one with them,
observe them and be like them –
their lives seem like a perfection.
And there are days I wish to fly to the moon
and float with stars,
far from this world –
above clouds and mountains –
these are days of
lightness and renunciation.
On both such days, I am me.
