The silent buddha is made of stone,
Of stone the silence too.
His home articulate
With the atmosphere,
Articulate with thought:
The morning sky is but the temple apse
That opens the vaulting span,
There upon the first hour braced,
Here entangled in the rising sun.

At this exhalation
Came a pause to catch the tail of a thought
Til the pause was sovereign,
As a surface to an echo,
As forever to a breath:
By this unremitting heart
Am I jailer of myself.
