#17 POETRY I AM SEARCHING FOR

Poetry I am searching for
spoken in light
renews insight into art and nature.

No, what I mean is not for me to say
for it is channeled through me
from nature to you and out
beyond mere sense.

I desire truth in words that stay.
But I cling to words
that leave me deluded.

I pick at dead skin
bite nails
and scratch the Buddha.
