Shih-Te. Literally, “Pick-up. Foundling.”

Not going, not coming
rooted, deep and still
not reaching out, not reaching in
just resting; at the center
a single jewel, the flawless crystal drop.
In the blaze of its brilliance–
the way beyond.
Shih-Te, 9th century Tang Dynasty Chinese Buddhist monk and poet
