Uriah Hamilton

Zen Galaxy - Poem by Uriah Hamilton

Li Po liked to drink
Beneath the intoxicating moon
And write illuminating poetry
More translucent than a thousand stars
Dancing like ecstatic dervishes;
Han Shan wrote poetic wisdom
On trees and roadside rocks
Still surviving in the Zen galaxy
Of beautiful truth.
These days of endless pain
May yet create flower gardens
And illustrious bouquets.

    Dear Uriah,

    A departure from your romances, but your beautiful writing still entrances the reader. Beautifully and skillfully rendered.
