The way to You

By Hakim Sanai(1044? - 1150?)

English version by Priya Hemenway

The way to Youlies clearly in my heartand cannot be seen or known to the mind.As my words turn to silence,Your sweetness surrounds me.

Hi Alan -I'm back! I'm still recovering from my injury, but I'm mostly mobile now and I can take all but the deepest breaths without much pain. And you know the old joke about how it only hurts when I laugh? Well, if I'm very careful, I can let out a little chuckle... :-)I can't tell you all how much all of your get well wishes meant to me. I received so many emails and notes that I couldn't respond to them all individually, but I read every one and was deeply moved. Some of you sent me poems. Others told me of your own injuries and recovery. A few suggested I switch to the gentler arts of yoga or tai chi, some even questioning how I can reconcile the martial arts with the spiritual path (one person's quip: "less martial, more arty"). ... Material for a future blog post, perhaps.I'm glad to be back with all of you, sharing another poem...Have a beautiful full moon
