haiku and such

who am I

which part of me

is unsatisfied

spring fog is here

warm afternoons and cool air

no track of time

conditioned mind

its vision narrow

look through awareness

mix of emotions

watching preferences arise

I’ll take the green tea

stone thrown in pond

water reverberates

birds fly, flowers fall

a candle flickers

our true self is right here

light casts a shadow

looking deeply into

the mirror of samadhi

I vow to polish

laughing with delusions

being with others

opening new doors

cleaning the zendo

birds singing dharma

time to go home

the han sounds funny

a friend points to the center

sound of wood rings clear

dolphins passed us in winter

we watched from the shore

no coincidence

returning to office

meeting with other buddhas

please have some tea

life is a painting

both dreadful and wonderful

who is the artist?

eating clam chowder

before sitting zazen

doan, ring the bell
