“From a rough stone ledge
come a hundred marble fountains.
Out of unconditioned emptiness
comes this planet with all its qualities.
Lakewater over there.
Out of one huge NO come a chorus of yeses.
Rivers of light flow from human eyes,
and consider your ears,
where language alchemizes into amber.
He gives the soul a house,
then another and another.
He descends into the ground
and makes it majesty.
Be silent now.
Say fewer and few praise poems.
Let yourself become living poetry.”
