Death Poem

Roshi Myogen Steven Stuckey recently passed away on Dec. 31, 2013 from pancreatic cancer. He is fondly remembered for his kindness and humor. Death Poem

"This human body truly is the entire cosmos Each breath of mine, is equally one of yours, my darling This tender abiding in 'my' life Is the fierce glowing fire of inner earth Linking with all pre-phenomena Flashing to the distant horizon From 'right here now' to 'just this'

Now the horizon itself Drops away— Bodhi! Svaha.
