Yugen (Zen. the sense of)

by Roy K Austin
(England)

Rays at sunrise like a chord
fill the mountain air with song,
all vibrations to a word
reminiscent of a gong ?

Grandeur is the rolling earth
in turning to a morning sky,
that eagle answering my question
that the dawn implies the eye !

A shepherd with his sheepdog
running foothills to the scar,
the solid ripples in the rock
the fluid echoes of a star !

A clutch of eggs, the hue of sky
as if the sky had learned to fly,
to fill the mountain air with song -
reminiscent of a gong !
