Notes on Emptiness #4

obscure birdcalls from the big pine next door
disappear when you search for them
like trying to thread the needle of emptiness

How Sufi...
"A man crouching on the ground, his head thrown back, his eyes shut as if he were in a dream, sang an ancient song in which the word for love alternated with the word for death. Then everything grew still, and became a part of the immense silence roundabout."
- Isabelle Eberhardt

How Buddhist...
"Relaxed, resting his head on his arm, he abandoned himself to the infinite sweetness of falling asleep alone on the ground, a stranger among simple rough men, in a nameless desert spot to which he would never return."
- Isabelle Eberhardt

Help! I've written and I can't get up!
