Haiku – Non-intellectuality

September 21, 2013

soundless hand
clapping all alone
mondo over

a summer’s night
there inside the pond
finger found the moon

blowing in the wind
he last saw
his lost  faith

which way wu-wei
inside the rice bowl
eat when your hungry

  1. I was too sleepy to comment last night:) this photo and post is so beautiful and reminds me a lovely afternoon I spent with my son last Fall by a lake and watching ducks floating by…one trying to get on a log:)


    • Thanks Chèvrefeuille! This was a particullarly easy group to write…seemed that every Zen teacher I’ve ever encountered were bunching up to have their say!
