Clear like space
the Universe is burning,
but flames can't touch it.

A falling leaf
Shatters the ice on the pond,
Fish swim in water.

Gagging on words
One misses the true moment,
Of just being.

Paisley Blue

To kiss your face,
For coming into this world,
Thank you Paisley Blue.

The temple bell,
Teaches the humility,
Of letting go.

~Dedicated to those who wholeheartedly practice the Way.


The Robin's song,
Resounding through the zendo,
Demonstrates the Way.

~Dedicated to Dogen Zenji
