Crossing to the other shore

This came to me in my meditation, I’m not sure from where …

Eyes boring into emptiness—why?
Man looking to his existence—where?
Vajrasattva—destruction!

Rivers roll by
Rivers pass around
The bend.

Struggling, flailing arms,
Flopping legs, grasping feet …
White water rapids—ahhh …

Man no more—where?
Emptiness—fear—why?
Ignorance—reaching—reaching
Out—confusion.

Vajrasattva—HELP!

Head above,
Trepidation, terror, silence.
Mind here, mind there—hope.

Can’t look! Peeking through fingers spread,
Vajrasattva—compassion, calm abiding,
Rest, solace, one-pointedness—there!
