Dick Allen Reads Poetry For The Tricycle Community

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.
