Lions Roar : January 2016
Poems from Call Me by My True Names: The Collected Poems of Thich Nhat Hanh, published by Parallax Press. Calligraphies by Thich Nhat Hanh, available at lionsroar.com. ILLUSION TRANSFORMED Horizon’s heavy eyelids, mountains leaning, seeking rest from Earth’s pillow— at nightfall grass and flowers perfume sleep. Illusion shifts her veils. Wind lifts up her hands. Jade candles shimmer in the silver river of the sky. The hillside’s open doorway frames a falling star that writes the sacred words in fire. Ten thousand lives are spinning, circling dream’s illusion. The moment of this night reveals this world’s reality. GOING IN CIRCLES O you who are going in circles, please stop. What are you doing it for? “I cannot be without going, because I don’t know where to go. That’s why I go in circles.” O you who are going in circles, please stop. “But if I stop going, I will stop being.” O my friend who is going in circles, you are not one with this crazy business of going in circles. You may enjoy going, but not going in circles. “Where can I go?” Go where you can find your beloved, where you can find yourself. INTERBEING The sun has entered me. The sun has entered me together with the cloud and the river. I myself have entered the river, and I have entered the sun with the cloud and the river. There has not been a moment when we do not interpenetrate. But before the sun entered me, the sun was in me— also the cloud and the river. Before I entered the river, I was already in it. There has not been a moment when we have not inter-been. Therefore you know that as long as you continue to breathe, I continue to be in you. PHOTOBYDONGOLDBERG
