詩; poetry

realized…

this, is the opportunity to engage,

and yet,
what role is it?
to find the ways
to cut a hundred to fifty,
a thousand to five hundred, and
ten thousand to less than limitless for
the benefit of all beings?
and then, cut fifty,
to twenty five,
to fifteen,
to one,
mu,
and thus,
it is known,
that this practice,
this way, is realized, it
rather than repetition, and this, just
this, is the opportunity to engage,
engage, direct, being to being,
mind to mind — seeing,
touching, feeling,
tasting, hearing,
emptiness,
here,
is
peace,
and it, beyond,
wars of selves, and we’s,
“what are you fighting for?”,
“lived in perfect symmetry”,
“what I do, that will be done to me,”
karma, and vipaka,
symmetry,
tilted,
time,
space,
“don’t break their hands,”
“people’s livelihood,”
the most bene-
ficial livelihood,
is peace, and
harmony,
beyond,
competition.

emptiness,
is exactly,
grasping.
in one cut.
one strike —
beyond many.
wisdom greets wisdom.
“such a beautiful view, i guess,”
“you’ve seen it all; seen”
“nothing at all”,
emptiness-
lessness,
“shining so bright”,
tate-yoko.
“moving at the speed”
“of light”,
“moving with such irresistable speed,”
“you don’t see me”,
because it is,
beyond self,
and other,
emptiness,
wisdom, and
method, god,
the son, and spirit.

emptiness is exactly grasping,
one time, only now,
ichi go – ichi eh,
tada, ima,
mu.
wisdom,
love, compassion,
these are the masters,
beyond the misguided ways,
kami, take musu aiki,
“just a dream”,
“it was real… to me…”,
real aikido,
from
heaven,
the high planes.
