What Was It?

What was it Yuan-Wu said,


“Picking up a blade of grass,

you can use it for the body of the Buddha,

taking the body of Buddha

you can use it as a blade of grass.”


When your cell phone rings,

you’re talking to every light or dark star

that ever existed,


including our sun

or at least the name we call it.



big yellow spot in the sky.

Miracle, miracle, miracle,

to almost realize.


-Dick Allen
