和歌 February 2018

By Rory A.A. Hinton

Befriending great death.
Because of her life, I am
in her fateful debt.
The three-fold vow led us here:
from above, now so below.

It's probably me.
I also hate to say it,
but it's true. You see
clearly, I am still loving
desperately beyond my reach.

February 08, 2018
I gaze at your face.
The whole night through, you help me
embrace this cool place.
I would go out of my mind,
but for your yeshé cholwa.

Intimate Merton.
The story's in the Storey?
I'm not so certain.
The damaged glory is found
in the posthumous journals.

Profound treasury.
The no-man in no-man's-land:
writing irony.
Riding the three vehicles
simultaneously free.

It is just like this:
Bodhidharma is always
coming to his bliss.
Don't try to keep this in mind.
Qingyuan brings all this out.

This is a confusing word.
The Third Ancestor?
He is a confusing man.
Sit down. Stand up. Disappear.
