A Man of White

Hanging from a tree among the trees – a man of white.

Such blue surrounds us.

Leaves gently move on a soft breeze.

.

I look to him.

Hard, dirty suffering – when will it end?

Comfort comes, comfort of a human solidarity now divine.

.

You draw my attention inwards to you.

Gently and wonderfully I feel isolation become compassion within.

You make the death of suffering a new life thing.

.

A Crow lands, bearing witness to change.

Black is mind accepting its place.

Black is the light of your presence.

.

This man of white hangs before me.

My master, my brother, my friend.

He asks that compassion become an energy of loving embrace.

.

He is love in my deepest place.

That ‘no-place’ that intellect tries to claim

But does not understand.

.

The white man, hanging, claims this ‘no-place’

Gives it freely to me.

It was there all along.

.

Live from that hidden place

Where the white man hangs no more.

Let his compassion be yours.
