The Tao Is Tao (125)

@125





                                                          125

                              Even after his illusions have evaporated
                                                  into emptiness,
                                              the image of her face
                                                        lingers,
                                            pale as a lily in the shade.

                                                                    -- Jos Stabbert
                                                                   "The Tao Is Tao" #125

To be posted tomorrow ondaily_tao


Her image lingers
Yes, i know, i no.
Her face was the least illusory thing
in this illusory world.
Yes, the image of her face lingers.
still more real than other things.

Her image lingers, yes, i no.
Since i cling to the illusion of self,
and she was more real to me than self
It is no wonder her image abides
(Well, it is a wonder, but no surprise.)

No, it's not a surprise and that's as it should be. Love does that.
