Words and Actions

Some say that actions are
more powerful than words
because words in the mind
are only shadows and signs
of the things they signify.
But there are some words,
ancient, sweet with sap,
fragrant with pollen,
that fall into the bodhi field,
intuition beyond thought.
Some words are even seeds
light, germs of awakening,
that heal the body, and some
words penetrate the silence
of the heart, most potent
acts and sub-nuclear
explosions that dance in
black holes at the centers
of un-created galaxies,
reminding every dimensionless
point in eternal space
that there is no time, no
matter no motion, only
consciousness its
