Daily Practice

Be courageous and discipline yourself.

Work.  Keep digging your well.

Don’t think about getting off from work.

Water is there somewhere.

Submit to a daily practice.

Your loyalty to that is a ring on the door.

Keep knocking and the joy inside

will eventually open a window and

look out to see who’s there.
