Leap Beyond


              A leap beyond to new plateau
              beyond beyonds we’ve come to know
              gives rise to cosmic skies o’erspread
              with dreams where dreamers scarcely tread
              in firmament of indigo.

              The mortals wed to status quo
              of pomp and circumstantial show
              afeared of drop below may dread
              a leap beyond.

              Yet some unmindful souls will throw
              their fate into uncharted flow
              by stepping out of common thread
              to find their feet where others fled
              ere death unbidden would bestow
              a leap beyond.

              ~ Harley White

The poem is a rondeau…

Some inspiration derived from the teachings and writings of Nichiren Daishōnin…

The reason that we continually recite Nam Myōhō Renge Kyō
