I dream of Bodhidharma

by Craig Reeder


I dream of Bodhidharma, 

    though I am not asleep

I hear his call to awaken

the souls of the world


and I search for the nothingness

that hides in the gaps

between our thoughts


but nothingness

is not nothingness


for in the gaps there is light

and infinite space


for in the gaps there is love

and boundless compassion


for in the gaps there is peace

and liberation


I dream of Bodhidharma

and suddenly, in an instant

I awake
