  • Dick Allen Reads Poetry For The Tricycle Community Paid Member

    Five recordings of the great Buddhist poet Dick Allen are now available on the homepage of the Tricycle Community.  They are: “Zen Living”, “The American Zen Master”, “At the Shrine of the Lost Cause”, “Plum”, and “Meditation on Poems for the Nine Monks”. I had the tremendous privilege of getting to record this audio over the phone with Mr. Allen earlier this year. A massive snowstorm was bombarding New York City and I remember hanging on to his every word and phrase, completely losing track of time and space as I gazed out of our office window at giant snowflakes falling past the bricks and fire escapes of Tribeca.   It was quite an experience.  I am very happy to share them with you all now. They can be found here on the Tricycle Community homepage. More »
