364 (now the ears of my ears awake and now the eyes of my eyes are opened)


Day 364 Monday, March 15th, 2021

(now the ears of my ears awake and

now the eyes of my eyes are opened)




i thank You God for most this amazing

day:for the leaping greenly spirits of trees




and a blue true dream of sky;and for everything


which is natural which is infinite which is yes


(i who have died am alive again today,


and this is the sun's birthday;this is the birth

day of life and love and wings:and of the gay

great happening illimitably earth)



how should tasting touching hearing seeing

breathing any-lifted from the no

of all nothing-human merely being

doubt unimaginable You?



(now the ears of my ears awake and

now the eyes of my eyes are opened)
