the vastness of unimaginable you

261

He who would rest in
perfect peace
must know the nameless name
whence all things rise
and bloom and cease
returning whence they came.
~ Tao

What IS this “nameless name”?
The echoes whisper and scribbler scribbles …

 .

The wild wideawake
knowingness
that can never be known.

The brilliant light of
awareness
that has never been lit.

The perfect present
suchness
that can never be escaped.

The vastness of unimaginable
You
before you are labeled and defined.

immersed in an ommm-ing ocean

now

awareness
flooded with lorrikeet-language,
with crow-craw and the chatter
of feathered friends

 

this

twinkling, sunbright morning
whitewashed sky
behind gold-tipped gums

 

here

on my cushion, sleepy-eyed
body breathing in and out
immersed in an ommm-ing ocean:

 

creation’s nameless name

don’t look for me in my story

86

I have (re) turned to face the faceless
and find myself

absorbed

I can write letters from home
but cannot again

depart

don’t look for me in my story
I am not there

nameless

is my unspeakable name
and all stories

happen

in this that I is

anything to report?

only apparent things apparently reported
by an apparent reporter to an apparent reader

since one apparent thing
is as good as another:

pigeons coo and bob
shadows flicker and fade
sun burns into the dawn
hand writes unthought words
thoughts think it’s miraculous
bum numbs on scrawny zafu
chuckling chuckles…

and inseparable from the display of appearances
something unknowable yet known

the nameless name

is omnipresent
