foxes

3 kits and
a mother -
their earth is near.

Hearing mice at 150 feet,
we watch them leap.

The night air deadens red.
Instead,
only shadows play, tails tipped
in white.

I thought

To be born blind
and see much!

Such life for 4
in darkness!

diagnosis - before


When a man is without self-identification with any object or idea, and does not grieve for what does not exist - that is what is called a Bhikku.    Dhammapada 25. 367


This -
known from
a discernment, an accumulation,
by sifting through
ciphers.

Here the signature - naming it.
