The light in the stillness of the night


"To be enlightened is to be intimate with all things"

Zen master Dogen


"Awaken the mind without fixing it anywhere"

Diamond sutra



 The still darkness of the boundless night


reveals the fire of the starry light


The naked beauty of the moon is glowing


in silent timeless knowing


Naturally content


the song of unity is calling


The imagined house of cards is falling


In diversity from separate strings 


music of beauty springs


All is clear beyond fear


love is always

Nils, your work is always a meditative prayer. This one is proof.

This is very inspiring and deep. Nice one.

The phrases that resonate with me: "the still darkness of the boundless night"; "the naked beauty of the moon"; "music of beauty springs"; "All is clear beyond fear."

As always, I cherish the soul-affirming tenor of what you present here at Poetbay. Peace and light.
