Wangapeka June/81



Inside-out is right way in

Where there seem boundaries

yet is boundless

Where many play

yet only one is

Where movements are

yet there is no beginning or end

Where everything is centred

yet there is no centre

Where dancing takes place

yet nothing moves

Where I is all one unbounded

immediate, incredible whole;

infinitely small and large

complex and simple

all at once.

There, is the appearance of the snow white milkweed seed

puffed from everywhere

floating in the void
