Description The bell tolls at four in the morning.I stand by the window,barefoot on the cool floor.The garden is still dark.I wait for the mountains and rivers to reclaim their shapes.There is no light in the deepest hours of the night.Yet, I know you are therein the depth of the night,the immeasurable world of the mind.You, the known, have been thereever since the knower has been.The dawn will come soon,and you will seethat you and the rosy horizonare within my two eyes.It is for me that the horizon is rosyand the sky blue.Looking at your image in the clear stream,you answer the question by your very presence.Life is humming the song of the non-dual marvel.I suddenly find myself smilingin the presence of this immaculate night.I know because I am here that you are there,and your being has returned to show itselfin the wonder of tonight's smile.In the quiet stream,I swim gently.The murmur of the water lulls my heart.A wave serves as a pillowI look up and seea white cloud against the blue sky,the sound of Autumn leaves,the fragrance of hay-each one a sign of eternity.A bright star helps me find my way back to myself.I know because you are there that I am here.The stretching arm of cognitionin a lightning flash,joining together a million eons of distance,joining together birth and death,joining together the known and the knower.In the depth of the night,as in the immeasurable realm of consciousness,the garden of life and Iremain each other's objects.The flower of being is singing the song of emptiness.The night is still immaculate,but sounds and images from youhave returned and fill the pure night.I feel their presence.By the window, with my bare feet on the cool floor,I know I am herefor you to be - from 'Call Me By My True Names' the collected poems of Thch Nht HnhSweet DreamsSunset Paako Beach Makena Maui HawaiiCopyright 2015 Sharon Mau - All Rights Reservedhttp://www.sharon-mau.artistwebsites.com https:

"What keeps me alive is found between the images, between the words, between thought, the emptiness of feeling, and in the emptiness of the body... there arises the fullness and significance of life... " ~ Basarab Nicolescu
