POEM: Koan (from Inverse Origami)


head-lamp                                                                shining

out of the eyes                                           wholeness

hiding                                               nothing

admitting                      everything

swamp songs of peepers at twilight

love                              hate                  indifference

shoeless feet slapping clay tile


flat surface of soup in a bowl

I am


mist drawn up from the lake

interior                 exterior

unchanged at 5 a.m.    the same at midnight

elemental         &         spacious

from Inverse Origami - the art of unfolding
