No Place

gray days are their own kind of solace
no place to go except inside
the universe of ten directions
from here there is only Nirvana

into skies of endless clarity
the pine grows patiently
by degrees seemingly
measureless yet upwardly
progressing reaching infinity
truth rooted in certainty
all ten directions gracefully
revealing what is hidden

moving through time
constant transitions

blue mountain white cloud
lighter than yesterday

a smile on buddha’s face
a mirror polished clean

darkness holds no demons
distance no demands

one sighting of the ox
the ox is forgotten

the ocean of equanimity
adrift in peace

relaxed in The Source
embraced in oneness
