Zazen on Sunday

MORE ABOUT POETRY

   
     
 

Summer air fills
the room with night 

the oak floor is emptied
of the din of table and couch

then clack of block
I soften cheek and mouth

across the hum of thought
hear the rustle of folding

robes and the whirr of the fan
the vocable of words murmuring

along the ladder of my ribs

the story crowding the room
