One Luxurious Way to Relax

During a night storm

Try to stay awake

Listen, listening

With your innermost ears

To the rain drops

Hitting the roof

The doors, the windows

Of your entire selfhood

Like a flock of pigeons from heaven

Coming to perch above your head

Their wings shining with moonlight

Their sweet beaks

Pecking constantly

At every string

Within your soul
