Boketto

.—the act of gazing vacantly into the distance
    without thinking (Japanese)

Tao

.
.
suddenly you become aware
you’re in a neutral state
caught in a waking dream,
but not quite

utterly held, afraid to move
for fear the moment will be ended
like an switchedoff light

circumference of it boundless
center of it here
reference of it groundless
isness of it clear

it lasts for just a moment
it’s the everness of thou
it’s the opposite of anguish
it is the essence of the Tao
