I open a book by John Daido Loori - The Zen of Creativity - Cultivating Your Artistic Life. He says to make love with light.
"Make love with light. Create a visual or word image of the feeling of love you have for some person, place, or thing. This means expressing the feeling itself, not simply a subject that you love."
"The point of this practice is to use light in such a way that it expresses your experience of love." He goes on with his words, but his idea is to use light to communicate the feeling of love. Hmmmm! Keep practicing, he says. It is a koan.
Who calls my poems poetry?
My poems are not poetry.
Knowing they are not poetry,
Let's start by talking together about poetry.
Perhaps that is the point of the experimenting with communicating on love. Hmmmmmm! Yum!
