Wishes of the five elements

We direct our attention
To the high waves of life
Watching for auspicious wishes
Burning with desire
Building castles in the air
Finally stranding at our destination
Caught in the magic of such wishes
In short-lived ectasy
Only to release the anchor again
In the ether of time
On the waves of hope and happiness
Focusing on new lands
Where milk and honey flow

Wishes are like footprints on the seashore
They fade in the waves of coming and going
They keep forcing new wishes upon us
Just to catch a little happiness

This is not the immaculate happiness of life
Our soul searches for, for lasting happiness

Our mind copies the longing of the soul
For that eternal happiness
It chases from wish to wish
Remains trapped in the outside

Blessed are those who are desireless….
