Gaumin Si

outside the Chan hall
at Gaumin Si
we discussed and stretched
after De Lin’s Dharma talk
I told John I thought
one of the best bits
was when he said
“the silence of silent illumination
is not the silence of no thoughts
it’s the silence of no reaction”
John poked me in the forehead



forget it!”
