Daily Tao - 40

Tao is always heading
back to where it came from.
Tao advances by not pressing forward.

Things exist because they are.
They are because they once were not.
-

The Beatrice Tao.

Daily Tao - 40

Ivan M. Granger - Adi Atman 9: you you

Adi Atman,

I am a fool

I place a picture
before me
and say
     -- you you

hosanna hari hari bol!

daybreak and I whisper
to the sun
     -- you

full moon night
and I cry out
     -- you

summer downpour
the thunder crash
shouts for me
     -- YOU

drowning
drunk from too much
seawater
I sputter
     -- you you you

shambo shankara!

I am a grasping fool
I say -- you --

and you are gone

when I remember to shut up
then you are here

and I am gone


-- from Real Thirst: Poetry of the Spiritual Journey, by Ivan M. Granger
