ZEN IS NOW
By Daniel H. Canada Jr. "OBSIDIAN!!!" [Excerpt from "Zen is Now" c. 1999]






Diminished

Blink my eyes
Caught you staring
Open wide
Sunlight’s glaring
Shun the world
Reap no fruitage
Peace at last
Found my courage
Shut my eyes
Sleep and slumber
Fitful dreams
Draw me under
My own world
Strange and vivid
Flashes of time
Of once I lived in
Open wide
Daylight’s pressing
Tarry now
No concession
Time warps lapsed
No remaining
Time warps lapsed
No complaining
Start at the end
Begin at the finish
No matter how we strive
We’re still
Diminished…
