“At the center of your being you have the answer.” Lao Tzu

The Eye Must Seek

As with darkness, so with beauty,
the eye must seek the subtlety of
darkest light which lies within the 
veil of night behind the gaze that
sees all, yet desires a self-full 
knowing glint, a ghost of halo, a
soft gleam of meaning.
