Poetry

where mystery, emptiness, and form are expressed with twilight language in verse

The  Murmurtion of Knowing Into Loving:

between silence and dawn i built a bedroom
whose window looks out upon all existence.
with Love.

everything, seen in silence, is known
and loved …….and is one’s own.

appearance is a conference of birds flown down
from above. bright tumbling starling murmuration
of knowing into loving.

 

silence is filled.  suddenly.  without breaking.  that
secret dakini language - the script called appearing
spilling over,
bubbling up,
plunging down

until concept experiences word death. 
twilight overwhelms.

 

all of this comes from forsaking small talk.  the
banter of ghosts can not satisfy.  gossip is always
of the dead. .
                         .
                      .
                         tired words, exhausted, worn out,
                            angry spreading fatigue like plague
                        bites of infected fleas.

 

between evening and nightfall the door of living
opens and  the 10,000 starlings of affection fly
out as the poetry of living. - t.k.
