Look at Zen –

Zen fulfills the Zephyr’s purpose
Negates the Zest of existence
Brings both into an envelope

The end of Seiza and Kiza
One kneels in a Zed-like posture
Preparing to embrace the nil

The mental unites with Reason
Entering into entropy
Ending with the end’s beginning

Zephyr is a western wind
A gentle breeze
Effusing power of Zephyrus,
Wind most fertile,
God who gave his name for us
To speak, effably, of
Invisible things
Meaning ferried to and fro
Effortful suffering
Flames of the effigy burn east
What is ready must be earned
On the Zephyr we can ride
Easily easing into Me.

I zig
Interior direction
Of God’s involution

I zag
Expansive action
Of God’s evolution

Zig-zag
Out of Zilch
Into Exactness

Zipping You Up
The end of Close
Beginning with the tip
Of Zipper slipping
Into a clip
Peeling into a new perspective
Slipping into Me
Grasping at Me
Clasping at Me
Ending at the end of Close

Undoing at the end of Close
Clasping at You
Grasping at You
Clipping into You
Unpeeling to a new perspective
Of a Zipper slipping
Out of a clip
Ending with the lip
O, the beginning of Open
Unzipping You

[Apr 10 AM]

I am ready secretly
Preparing for rest
After all this time,
So many days of Yang,
So many fires,
So much thunder,
So much gathering
With neither music nor humor
A valor tentative,
Tested without conclusion
As daylight tapers in the South
As time dials down in the North
I am ready for You,
Zany poet

Who else would ask how to Zai
On the zig-zag path to Zion?

Who else would require
Movement without return but reason?
Thought with both purpose and surprise?

These are the days, these are the times
When more of the Same is madness
When the Zei is alive with the center of Anything

[Apr 8 PM]

Tolerance begins with talking
A tapering of hollering
Bringing together all of us
For learning much from each other
It closes as the balance ends
A more educated conscience

[Apr 6 PM]

Rising outside
Powerful Tower
Shape of a T
Arising in a Word;
Not merely a Post
Put in a hole
Stuck in the ground,
But puny in size;
Round as a column
Which may topple,
But as sturdy
As the ground itself
On which I rest.

Sticky to touch
Stretched confection
Like a giraffe’s neck
Taffy fruity fluffy
My candy feeling

Watch how I act here
Put on tactful manners
Use delicate greetings
Empathetic Gemini
This is how galaxies parlay
Diplomat to diplomat
Expanding into the void
