the soul drenched in love
seeks nothing, gives everything
finds Buddha within*


even the desert dancers
bow gracefully to the earth

The dancers allege
that nothing can take the place
of an all-night whirl.

The dancers conceal
their true purpose in whirling
from midnight to sunrise.

The dancers propose
a toast to the old fiddler,
who keeps them whirling.

Oranges ripen
far from the bamboo gardens—
