The Sun and a Crane

this old monk wouldn’t put up a finger
for the entire universe

he watches the old crane fishing
in the waves on the beach

sunrise is the sun coming up over here
sunset is the sun going down over there

the equanimity of the absolute
the miracle of the relative

magnificent and mundane
just the sun and a crane
