Zen Master Poems
by Dick Allen




Overview -
A unique voice in American poetry evocative of Han Shan's Zen verses, Pablo Neruda's Book of Questions, and the writings of Jack Kerouac.

What a long conversation
we never had

All those rivers?
we never crossed together.

You so busy with your own life,
I so busy with mine.

Dick Allen, one of the founders of the Expansive Poetry movement, has won the Robert Frost Prize, the Hart Crane Poetry Prize, and the Pushcart Prize--among others. His work has been anthologized five times in the Best American Poetry volumes, and has appeared in The New Yorker, The Atlantic Monthly, Tricycle, The Buddhist Poetry Review, and The American Poetry Review, as well as numerous other publications.
