    Paste is always grayed out when I try that. When I try the old method of displaying pictures it works but just wont show in the post, strange.


    And you say you just copy and paste, and yours works?

    Odd very odd.

    Anyway I will for a time put the graphic as my Avatar, and then post the way I manipulated your poem in a graphic that shows the similarity to the Arabic script for god.


    Also understand that they draw that word all kinds of ways (just Google, Allah) so it is not an exact replica of the two words we have, but it is there for any to see.

    Re: Koan of Love's Cry

    Thank you for the illustration, Girard.  It's really wonderful -- and not something I would have noticed.  Thank you, brother.

    Here is a second-person lament that I wrote many years ago:

    Chichen Itza

    Chichen Itza,
      shake your feet of my dust.
    I feel the world's dead
      crouched in my step.
    I trudge at the hewn
      edge of your stone
    Like all pilgrims,

    I bear my grief    unoffered
    in my circled arms,
    On the cut    stone    tongue
    of my repentance,
    In the great    shame
    roaring in my face.

    The holy sun
      burned you of your blood.
    It burns the altar
      wells of Itza,
    White as the high
      stone of the king's
    Ragged step
      to heaven.

    You leap like priests    on the plain
    for the Mayan sky,
    For the wash    of rain    rushing
    from the white sun,
    In the forgiveness    burned
    down on your stone.

    I came to the bones
    of your city by darkness.
    I bore my grief red
    beast to your stone.
    I came to bid
    blood bear my blood,
    But you stood    white as kings,

    You are the white    undoing of things,
    The feathers    of a death    I have not worn,
    The holystoning    of a sun   

    I have not known.


    Best wishes,


    May the boundless knowledge that time presents and space allows illuminate the native perspectives of your original face.

    Re: Koan of Love's Cry

    Thanks for the verse, its very good.


    As for you not seeing that, well it’s only because at the time of writing you were not familiar with the word.

    I saw it immediately.

    That seems to be one of my specialties.



    I finally copied and pasted from the web, but apparently it can’t be done from ones own pictures on ones pc.
