A fish cannot drown in water,
A bird does not fall in air.
In the fire of creation,
God doesn't vanish:
The fire brightens.
Each creature God made
must live in its own true nature;
How could I resist my nature,
That lives for oneness with God?


-- from The Enlightened Heart: An Anthology of Sacred Poetry, by Stephen Mitchell
Poetry Chaikhana | Mechthild of Magdeburg - A fish cannot drown in water

The flower
empollened
does not sneeze.
