it is not the clouds
which move effortlessly 
across the blue sky,
it is the Self
expansive and beautiful. . .

Dusty rose,
Is the color of the breeze,
On prairie grasses.

remnants of crops
touched by an early hoarfrost
and a pink sun

The resplendent Self,
In the form of a flower,
And a hummingbird.

Drama or Dharma?

Within the drama of this world,
Not an inch to stand on.
Yet, within the true Dharma,
There is not a 'person' who stands.

In the summer heat
Strawberry fields are empty
Quietly resting

Thursday, June 28, 2012


A hummingbird,
Charmed by the flower,
Absorbed in its grace.

Saturday, June 23, 2012


For a moment,
The hummingbird loses itself,
Within the flower.

the witness

clouds pass by and by
while the clear blue sky, remains-
the eternal witness

the fragrance of matcha tea
holding the warm bowl

Strawberry Fields

After the rains
Cold hands picking strawberries,
One by one by one.

rite of spring

swallows have arrived
filling the sky of my mind
with graceful flight

Full Moon

The beautiful moon,
Illuminates and is illumined,
As the seer sees.

Full Moon

It is easier
to find the moon
than to find
the person
who sees the moon.

morning meditation

sitting very still
opening the hand of thought
becoming the Self

Sunday, January 29, 2012


Shiva is dancing
Within you and without you
This very moment.

wind bell

the wind bell
chanting bodhidharma's name
with each passing breeze

August Moon

walking by the shore
the moon's reflection follows
my every footstep.

Saturday, January 7, 2012


Juniper incense,
Rivulets of blue smoke
Rise and disappear.
