Same Difference

.”
The Buddha’s doctrine is thus proven:
nothing in this world is created.
                  (Octavio Paz, per Dharmakirti)lotus

~~~

Nothing in this world is created,
said Buddha looking into the bowl of a lotus

Nothing is created

In this lotus filled to the brim
is nothing which has been created

Nothing is created

From the bottom of this lotus brimming with nothing
but filled with hope open as a door

Nothing is created

Nothing in Buddha’s lotus is created
This lotus has been overflowing always

Nothing is created

But something mounts the sky like a sun
wave by wave in no time laden with light always

Uncreated

When I woke this morning it was
inundating Bald Mountain

Uncreated

When was it not created?
Could it have been

Uncreated?

Buddha suggests
Nothing is created

Buddha is
Uncreated

What created creation?
Nothing

or the
Unknown

same difference
