Many paths lead from
The foot of the mountain
But at the peak
We all gaze at the
Single bright moon

Ikkyu
painting by Ito Jakuchu, 18.c.

"There is a brokenness
out of which comes the unbroken,
a shatteredness
out of which blooms the unshatterable.
There is a sorrow
beyond all grief which leads to joy
and a fragility
out of whose depths emerges strength.

There is a hollow space
too vast for words
through which we pass with each loss,
out of whose darkness
we are sanctioned into being.

There is a cry deeper than all sound
whose serrated edges cut the heart
as we break open to the place inside
which is unbreakable and whole,
while learning to sing."

~ Rashani

"i know love does to pain
what sunlight does to rain,
in the absence of doership
we’re reminded once again

that inherent in each cloud
is a rainbow not-yet-born,
the awakened state is present
even as we mourn.

so let the tears keep flowing
and trust whatever comes,
each moment is a banquet
of abundance, not of crumbs."

~ Rashani
(painting by Christy Freeman)

I celebrate myself, and sing myself,
And what I assume you shall assume,
For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you.

―  Walt Whitman

Longing, such longing — in the groves
I’ll cast me at thy feet,
And soothe my wearied soul less this longing
In nature’s converse sweet.

—  Patrick S. Cassidy

Hope is the thing with feathers

That perches in the soul,

And sings the tune without the words

And never stops at all.

― Emily Dickinson

Wisdom is nothing but a preparation of the soul, a capacity, a secret art of thinking, feeling and breathing thoughts of unity at every moment of life.

- Herman Hesse

Love to you. Now: see a wite Angel statue looking out on a clear blue sky.

See the birds, the winged ones, knowing: Try to remember and hold on.

So beautiful, this sonnet. I have not been here for long time. 

Thank, you for sharing this, and reminding.
