The agony of the leaves,
Sipping from the cup.

A Fly

Afternoon heat,
A fly sticks to paper,
The buzzing sound.

Tea . . . surrendering,
Leaves uncurling in the cup,
Their love is released.

The Way is a living Being,
Our practice is letting go,
Manifesting the activity,

The body is the gateway,
To calmness and tranquility.
The heart is the gateway,
To acceptance and love,
The mind is the gateway,
To the realm of not knowing,
Practice is the gateway,
Of all Buddhas and Bodhisattvas.

~Dedicated to the Practice of the Buddha Way

The crow at my window,
Announces the inseperable union,
Of emptiness and bliss,
Ca-Caw! Ca-Caw! Ca-Caw!

Winter Storm

Paw prints in the snow-
A fluffed up cat has been here!
Are his paws cold now?

The sky of stars,
And crescent moon,
Seem to be holding,
My cup of tea.

~Dedicated to greater understanding.

Winter Storm

Wisps of clouds,
Lazily sneaking across heaven,
Hinting at the frigid air which comes.
