Lead & Begin

... insightful with care not to leave a trace...

Take the -er out of leader.
Take the -er out of beginner.

Perception begins anew,
fresh, continually evolving,
now lead by wisdom.

Taking these qualities for self,
worshiped as i, as other,
lead to the three times:
future, present, passed,
and obscure what is,
beyond these.

Taking these qualities for assembly,
worshiped as we, as they,
lead to the three locales:
triangle, circle, square,
and obscure what is,
beyond these.

Just as an orange pealed, in pealing,
is done with care not to puncture its flesh,
so too with dhamma, in wisdom,
insightful with care not to leave a trace.
