Emptiness or Freedom !!!

Praise to the emptiness that blanks out existence. Existence:

This place made from our love for that emptiness!

 

Yet somehow comes emptiness,

this existence goes.

 

Praise to that happening, over and over!

For years I pulled my own existence out of emptiness.

 

Then one swoop, one swing of the arm,

that work is over.

 

Free of who I was, free of presence, free of dangerous fear, hope,

free of mountainous wanting.

 

The here-and-now mountain is a tiny piece of a piece of straw

blown off into emptiness.

 

These words I'm saying so much begin to lose meaning:

Existence, emptiness, mountain, straw:

 

Words and what they try to say swept

out the window, down the slant of the roof.
