The Bike

in nothingness there is space
space exists and exists
in space there is the world
the world orbits and orbits
in the world there is a wheel
the wheel spins and spins
on the wheel is a bike
the bike travels and travels
on the bike is a monk
the monk rides and rides
in the monk is a mind
the mind contemplates and contemplates
in the mind is a mantra
the mantra is thought and thought
in the mantra is Zen
Zen exists and exists not
in Zen is Nirvana
Nirvana is everything and nothingness


This poem was written as part of a regular practice of writing based on some single word or item, randomly picked from a dictionary, magazine, book, or some such.

The word for this one was “bike”.

It has not been changed in any way.
