Sky Prayer


[The sky here is not separate and ‘up there’, but rather an embodied part of this vast Australian continent. The sky is Original Mind, our essential nature, original Emptiness, Buddhist sunyata. I took the shot at Lake Conjola on the south coast, black basalt rocks like ancient beings in deep meditation.]

Sky Prayer

Sky stainless as steel,
sonorous with sun

elliptically edgeless
just like the One

riveting nail light
skewering skin of the earth

drumming its rhythm
forcing all birth

plants, melanoma,
wideness of soul, air

ocean of origins,
taughtly stretched hole:

disappear me for ever
burn me to light

invert my darkness
deepen my sight
