What Is This?

Without turning it

into anything at all,

what is this?

Tints Interacting

You know

your sight’s tinted

by time, space

and standpoint,

right?

And yet,

no matter the tints

obscuring

and insufficiently interacting

(and precisely

because of them),

without exception,

without exclusion,

this fully manifests,

whole, unhindered.

Tinted

You know

your sight’s tinted

by self,

right?

Without

this filter,

how is it?

Collusion

Delusions

upon delusions

collude to form

I, me, and mine

and

Us against Them.

Another way:

delusion

seeing through

delusion,

separation

seeing through

separation,

so there’s

no one

nothing

apart.

Chased

Isn’t it that

no one is chasing you

or running away from you

more than you do?

Selfless Activity

What is the direction of selfless activity?

It goes towards cessation

of the fruitless suffering separating

of beings not separate

(separation a delusion,

but suffering delusion’s very real effect).

Slip Up Grace

How does this very dream body

slip on a banana peel?

Whooosh

How does this very dream body land?

The whole universe one thud,

nothing remaining at all as: OUCH

What about the laughter of others,

and your own?

That too may be the dream body,

undoing image, liberating trouble.

How does this very dream body

get up?

A hand extended,

a hand taken,

oops-smile’s concern

meeting wink

aching.

Dream Body

It is said that ballet

conjures the dream body,

a body liberated from all trouble.

Of course,

since body and mind are one

conjured too

is mind free of all trouble.

Stepping outside the bounds

of choreographed steps –

say, right as the heart

of bustling, bumping, raucous,

chaotic Grand Central Station –

how do you step through,

ever a dream body

dancing others

free of all trouble?

Horses

You –

in perfect stillpeace rhythmic

breathful groundpound soaring

windswept wide-eyed rumbling –

where do the horses run free?

The Dust In Your Eyes

The dust in your eyes

flickering light:

the dust in your eyes

is the bringing of light

to life.
