Steve Tipton poem for us

Shunryu Suzuki student, prolific writer and teacher - sociology and theology - Steve Tipton is a close old friend. But he just learned that Katrinka and I got married here in Sanur three years ago. So he sent a poem.  Thanks Steve!

Friends to Wed

At times two people waiting for each other

Make up a silent poem waiting to be song.

Clear-eyed words then pause, turn toward music

From an unseen source, an intuition longing

To incarnate airy knowledge and let it dance,

Set free to touch, to taste, by harmony itself

Heartfelt, and wound with scented symmetry

In what was wavy sonant space before this

Graceful measure brought senses to its sound.
