From Now until Then
Can More be said?
From Now until Then,
Only Now I see.
Who can say I am alive?
A Mind to pierce all hardness.
There is nothing here
But frost upon the rocks.



The world turns upon itself
And is Aware,
Shouting: Now! Now! Now!
No thing can I give.
Only be aware
And dance among the shadows.
Thing - Thing,
None between.
Mirror to your soul.
There is no Law.
I float freely.
Free in the bonds of One Existence. 
The bent bow, full drawn,
I Am,
 The arrow, face into the rushing wind.

Birth creates Death,
Death creates Birth.
The pointing finger
Is not the moon.
Birthless/Deathless Mind
Creates the Now/Tao/Void.

Never born,
Never dying,
Point of perception
In a Conscious Universe.
Thou art That.

Buddahs and Tao and Void, Oh My!
Buddahs and Tao and Void, Oh My!
Buddahs and Tao and Void, Oh Mu!
Row, Row, Row your boat,
Gently down the stream.
Merrily, Merrily, Merrily, Verily
Life is but a ...

We Apologize for the Inconvenience.
