Nantenbo's last calligraphy

Just before he vanished into nothingness,
After a long life of shouts and wonders and whispers,
the big mountain-like Nantenbo
picked up willows, bushes and women' s graceful shapes;
he held the dear memory of the pregnant moon,
the blazing sun
and evererything else

Just before he went throught the gateless gate

In dark ink, 
the whole sky 
and nothing
else,

and emptiness

Autumn evening -
falling on the path
these old sutras

Regards,

Harry.
