bees )

You voluble, Velvety Vehement fellows
That play on your Flying and Musical cellos,
All goldenly Girdled you Serenade clover,
Each artist in Bass but a Bibulous rover!

You passionate, Powdery Pastoral bandits,
Who gave you your Roaming and Rollicking mandates?
Come out of my Foxglove; come Out of my roses
You bees with the Plushy and Plausible noses!

yearn for more






.


Yearn for more.
By God, don't linger
in any spiritual benefit you have gained,
but yearn for more, like one suffering from illness
whose thirst for water is never quenched.

This Divine Court is the Plane of the Infinite.

Leave the seat of honor behind;
let the Way be your seat of honor.

all motion is curved






.

I am
emptiness
but make
no mistake

emptiness is not
void. It has
flavor, it has
substance.
Its colors are dusk,
half-light, depth.

You are the tender
spread of dawn
when it first appears
and the last lingering
long after sunset.
You are the
emerald sheen of
sun in water
and the light that fails
to find its reflection
on a day of drizzle.

You take my
emptiness and spin it
into a blanket so light
it sits like stardust
on your shoulders,
my emptiness offering shade
to your dazzling Fullness.
