  1. ah this light

    – soft and vast even through a veil, even in such rooms –

  2. All you have shown is your veil
    & all you have hidden is your veil
    & all you have inscribed is your veil
    & all you have effaced is your veil
    & all you have covered is also your veil.

    Niffari tr. Pierre Joris

  3. wonderful lines. thank you, m.

    i love this veil/veiling/unveiling metaphor so much. and you know Pierre Joris? (but you know everybody anyway, i just happened to discover him through this music that i posted once:
    http://roxanaghita.blogspot.com/2009/03/nicole-peyrafitte-singing-pierre-joris.html )

    and now that i think of it, it is quite a coincidence that my post was also about a certain kind of light, and veils too…

  4. ah… Niffari… one could live one’s life just diving into Dogen and Niffari.

    by happenstance i actually had the pleasure of having lunch with Pierre in NYC a few years ago. none of my doing of course i was simply swept along to the cafe, but i remember a rather pleasant chat…
