Poem for Beginner's Mind (初心)

You can fill the page
With your personal slang
And silly rhymes
And still not advance
Beyond the starting line

Because the empty page
Is the surest sign of
Beginner’s mind
When mind itself
Falls under erasure

Only then does duality
Begin to subside like
The shadowless tree
Under a cloudless sky
In such silence where 
Poems from the first abide
