    These few words are inspired by Shobogenzo Koku.
    They were wriiten in an early morning train to answer one of my students poem about this chapter.

    Wonderful space
    Neither inside nor outside,
    When you're not there
    Then the ten thousand things move forward
    And an edgeless iris opens
    And turns a simple plum blossom
    Opening the open
    The body of a bell tinkling in the wind
    Dindin dindin dindin
    The ancient poem of Nyojo
    Expresses it so well
    Nothing that is not it
    And nothing to make, neither words nor forms
    The vast space is both matter and seal
    Presence undone of itself
    Our real body open like a mouth
    Hanging in space
