Goodbye-ee, goodbye-ee, wipe the tear, baby dear, from your eye-ee…Posted: March 4, 2012
“How is it to end?”
“As stories must when love’s denied: with tears and a journey”
from the film: Shakespeare in Love
Please forgive my barbaric yawp across the rooftops of the dharma world.
It is but the wrath that comes from a love denied,
a love that flourished and was then decried.
time to accept defeat and offer the victory to others
time to gather all blame into one
time to dissolve all into the timeless.
I will arise and go now, and go with the happy heart of the true renunciant
into the exile of the wilderness,
there hopefully one day to join the buddha
in the forest hut that is beyond expression,
beyond all rules, conventions, regulations, and decrees
beyond all commands and commitments
beyond all imputations
shantih, shantih, shantih…
