When you let your dark pool mingle

When you let
your dark pool
mingle with
your light air
embrace mist
not letting go,
concentrating
your breath
becoming
supple
as a baby's

grip
  When
you clean
the mind's
mirror--
when
you polish
away
the personality--
you can love
the people
and rule
without acting
when
your nostrils
open
and shut
can
you
stay
passive?
when
your vision
penetrates
the four winds
can you
remain
as if
ignorant?
such
concentration
yields
value only
the third eye
perceives
