Added ingredients

Why do they put the child in the pot of whirling things?

The child who arrives weeping.

The child whose eyes speak of untouched qualities. The light of nothingness.

In amongst the soup of ten thousand things.

Like a chef scatters a pinch of pristine sea salt to season the mix.

The purity is lost in the endless churning.

Yet the taste it adds is unmistakable.

And through a process of discernment can be extracted to reveal that original purity.

Why do they put the child into the pot of whirling things?

What strange game of chemical experimentation is this?

(this was inspired by a book called Aglaja Veteranyi which a friend told me about)
