Return to Shibui

“Spirit” is coherency & love
Or, better yet, aligning with them
Through the seams of a glorified  whole!                                
--Or maybe it’s all an artful sham,
A sordid bag of magician’s tricks
Paying homage to the sorcerer’s craft!
Such are the lying powers of the mind
That a thousand bodhisattvas leap from its cracks
In the guise of “halos ” & “groks,”
Luminous peals of pear shaped light
That maybe aren’t real peals at all
But the prattle of a lying stream!
A thousand voices decamp from the sea:
Abandon these dark discrepancies now,
Return to shibui and the rock garden spirit of her mists!
