from an evolving collection entitled Sun Lake Moon | for brother Ryūzen


Written After A Late Autumn Evening Conversation With Dai Shihan Ryūzen


Through wavering veils of sound,

a coastal dragon from the far wooded north

a lowland dragon behind the courtyard wall

discussed the dreaming way of The Way.


Though there were times

when a phrase here

and a phrase there

were lost in the great reverberating distance,

one spoken sentiment proved resilient,

and shall be:

Precision of consciousness.
