Return to Shibui
pound809

“Spirit” is coherence & love
 1
Or, better still, aligns with  them
 2
Through the threads of a seamless whole.                                  
 3
 
 
--Or maybe it’s all an artful sham,
 4
A sordid bag of magician’s tricks
 5
Paying homage to the sorcerer’s craft!
 6
 
 
Such are the lying powers of the mind
 7
That a thousand bodisattvas leap from its cracks
 8
In the guise of “halos ” & “groks,”
 9
 
 
Luminous peals  of pear shaped light
 10
That maybe aren’t real auras at all
 11
But the prattle of a lying stream!
 12
 
 
A thousand voices decamp from the sea:
 13
Abandon these dark discrepancies now,
 14
Return to shibui and the rock garden spirit of her mists.
