Into the black hole of Buddha-L,
Front Porch, End of Summer
The topmost leaves of a sycamore
looming giantly across the street
stir gently in the briefest breeze.
This is the action
They know no motive -- yet
Sultry air of September, it may rain.
Will thunder explode
Will a downpour invade
Small birds are seeking food
at day's decline.
Birds know they need food.
The trees do not know
they need water.
So, while all dharmas are
Some, like the trees, the thunder, the rain --
They do not sow....
They do not reap.
