Poetry is just the
evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just
Poetry is not always
It is the job of poetry to clean up our word-clogged reality by creating silences around things.

In truth we talk only to
but sometimes we talk loud enough that others may hear us.
The voice of life in me cannot reach the ear of life in you;
but let us talk that we may not feel lonely.
All our words are but crumbs that fall down from the feast of the mind.

The more you talk and
think about it,
The further astray you wander from the truth.
Stop talking and thinking,
And there is nothing you will not be able to know.
To return to the root is to find the meaning,
But to pursue appearances is to miss the source.
At the moment of inner enlightenment
There is a going beyond appearance and emptiness.
--Seng Ts'an (d.606)
