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

 

here

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.
