UNGAN’S NOT ANY SINGLE WORD

The youngest child,
her mind uncluttered,
can answer any question
unburdened by words,
and her answers
can only rebound
across the universe.
If you stop struggling
to hear her, let
the silence surround
you both, you cannot
escape the answers.


A reflection on case 84 of the Shobogenzo (True Dharma Eye)
