MAHAKASYAPA

Not a word spoken
“Pick up flower, subtle smile”
Message clear enough

A Gladdening

A GLADDENING

So another new day dimly dawns
Decked in chittering e-mails
But here comes it seems yours
For sure I tag it Personal tout de suite
Though not time yet to return the volley
For I am for my sins otherwise occupied
Smothered in oil, vinegar and mustard

So multimuch is out there … But the Truth?
Let’s be honest … If we dare
At root mainly much impersonal simplicity
Mainly simply words mimicking other words
They read somewhere sometime
In other words plagiarising
Acting out

But not yours
Dear one
Not yours
And so bless you
And all of any those
Who speak from the heart
Not as litany

Bless you
Bless you
Bless you thricely

The Real

THE REAL

Simply cloud castles
While who is out or in there
To decide The Real?

The Misdirection

THE MISDIRECTION

There is what we knew
And there is what we were taught
They are not the same

Home At Last

HOME AT LAST

Distracted actors
Mumbling along lost
Until we give up

Quicksand II

QUICKSAND II

An explanation
Is only a theory
But with pretensions

Never Pat A Burning Dog

NEVER PAT A BURNING DOG

Sundry faiths there are
Bickering over the words
Of a single truth

The Voice: Four By Six

THE VOICE

An untamed voice cries out
“Here’s to awakening”
And the clink of glasses
Resounds from shore to shore

Question And Answer

QUESTION AND ANSWER

The question is not
“Yes or no,” steadfast searcher
but, “Now or later.”

Magician II

MAGICIAN II

In the poet’s words
Something unique is revealed
As universal
