“Spontaneous Buddha Nature”: A Poem by Santi Tafarella

 

 

through feathery clouds

the sun opened

 

like the eye of an owl—

 

and in the sudden

bullet of glare

 

the quicksilver

breast

 

of a train

    Wonderful poem. The image of the sun opening like the eye of an owl is very strong, and much appreciated.
