POEM: Koan (from Inverse Origami)



Koan


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


one


flat surface of soup in a bowl


I am


holographic


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
