An udumbara flower blossoms.

Just as the bright and clear heart of the sun
cannot be obscured by the darkness of a thousand eons,
The luminous heart of your own mind
Cannot be obscured by this cyclic existence of infinite eons.

                                                                        –Mahasiddha Tilopa


An udumbara flower blossoms in the night

it's scent perfumes the air

Buddha's and yogis rejoice

common people don't notice.


A fortunate bee gathers nectar from an opening flower. A dung beetle

nestles in dung, discounting honey. A tree grows with roots in the sky and flowers

in the earth of the body. Who will notice?


There is something all your intellectual knowledge can't

ever grasp. It’s not inside, it’s not outside.        Quick where will you look?


Happy in my own little boat, room enough for all beings, the stars,

the whole night sky.  From the muck of confusions a lotus blossoms.

Buddhas everywhere and under the 4 AM milky way sky        and

my head becomes full of non sense.


Different aspects – same thing

Same thing – different aspects

Not two, not One, not none….


All that is just so many words, and outside - cherry blossoms in the moonlight.
