Gary Snyder: Avocado


Avocado

The Dharma is like an Avocado!
Some parts so ripe you can't believe it,
But it's good.
And other places hard and green
Without much flavor,
Pleasing those who like their eggs well-cooked.
 

And the skin is thin,
The great big round seed
In the middle,
Is your own Original Nature -

Pure and smooth,
Almost nobody ever splits it open
Or ever tries to see
Ifit will grow.
 

Hard and slippery,
It looks like
You should plant it - but then
it shoots out thru the
        fingers -

gets away.

Gary Snyder
