All you who sleep tonight
Far from the ones you love,
No hand to left or right
And emptiness above -
All those men were there inside,
when she came in totally naked.
They had been drinking: they began to spit.
Newly come from the river, she knew nothing.
And a youth said, 'Speak to us of Friendship.'
Your friend is your needs answered.
As the Sun withdrew his rays from the garden, and the moon threw cushioned beams upon the flowers, I sat under the trees pondering upon the phenomena of the atmosphere, looking through the branches at the strewn stars which glittered like chips of silver upon a blue carpet; and I could hear from a distance the agitated murmur of the rivulet singing its way briskly into the valley.
Wait, for now.
Distrust everything, if you have to.
But trust the hours. Haven't they
carried you everywhere, up to now?
Now, God be thanked Who has watched us with His hour,
And caught our youth, and wakened us from sleeping,
With hand made sure, clear eye, and sharpened power,
To turn, as swimmers into cleanness leaping,
HERE at right of the entrance this bronze head,
Human, superhuman, a bird's round eye,
Everything else withered and mummy-dead.
All day, day after day, they're bringing them home,
they're picking them up, those they can find, and bringing them home,
they're bringing them in, piled on the hulls of Grants, in
There he is, crossing the road,
very slowly, walking away from me.
I recognise his back, the way he walks,
Lost and alone, thoughts at a distance, heart heavy
Touched deeply by your life, not wanting to let go,
Write it. Write. In ordinary ink
on ordinary paper: they were given no food,
they all died of hunger. "All. How many?
It's a big meadow. How much grass
I know what seeing is!
As I saw you that day for the first time
So I know what liking is!
I was talking to the moon
Just the other night,
Telling him how much
I admired his light;
I THE DARK
In a worldless timeless lightless great emptiness
Four-faced Brahma broods.
After years of caring;
Comes the day, when the children depart,
for pastures new, for them a new start,
the life of my soul is you
and the breath that i take...
as we walk the aisle of joy
From your hips down to your feet
I want to make a long journey.
In the 5th century B.C.
an Indian philosopher
Gautama teaches 'All is emptiness'
and 'There is no self.'
nothing but nothing
emptiness but emptiness
Have yourself another drink
Drink all your emptiness up
Have yourself another big meal
Emptiness in life is like autumn
Emptiness in life is like withered garden
In the middle of nowhere
Out of nowhere
As far as the naked eye can see
Baby you are
so full of emptiness
so full of emptiness
but you are
In the night, the world stops spinning. The people stop talking. The animals stop eating. The cars stop moving. The wind stops blowing. The boy stops crying. And the wounds start healing.
The pain goes away, for a little while. In solitude life feels slow almost frozen. Everything comes to a chattering halt. And the heart is free. The mind is open. The body is calm. The soul is at peace.
I am empty of me
Yet I am full of you
I am in love with the emptiness
Because the emptiness is me
