Po Chu-I

Staying at Bamboo Lodge


an evening sitting under
the eaves of the pines
at night sleeping
in Bamboo Lodge
the sky so clear you'd say
it was drugs
meditation so deep, thought
I'd gone home to the hills
but Clever can't beat
Stupid
and Quick won't match
Quiet
Untoiling-ness!
(you just can't pave the Way)
that's it!
the Gate of Mystery!

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
