Relaxing Wording

To make, or read, monkpoems 
requires our relaxation.

By definition the art
of monkpoetry commands

our monk’s persistent focus,
our monk’s consistent intent,

so to usher in the light,
our monk’s nonresistant note . . .

which demands relaxed notice
that can take lots of practice.

To read a monkpoem may 
require reading not only 

one but ten thousand, afore
the feeling of abstraction

is blown away and the light
of direct seeing delights.

From mental consciousness one 
moves to wakeful awareness . . .

from spirit as idea
to creative act itself,

which happens but here and now.
