Remembering Coleman Barks

Wbarkse were not listening to a man, hm, we were listening to a CASTLE!  Which we walked inside, our ears as candles, and our hearts became illuminated.

Do so ever love that castle…

 

Coleman Barks wrote a poem about his son (and I can distinctly remember his voice):

‘He said, Benjamin my son said,
Show me the places you have loved,
so I will know them like you have.

I will have to do that someday,
he said when you are gone.

The small things & places
you have not told anyone of,
show me those.

I want your life
inside my life.’
