Duality – Choka/Haiku – September 21, 2014

For this week’s Heeding Haiku with Ha … I’m inspired to write about duality.  The idea in zen is to recognize duality … in this sense:

“The Tao begot one.
One begot two.
Two begot three.
And three begot the ten thousand things.”

Tao Te Ching …



this infinite universe
flowing – a constant whirl
this is eternal tao
blackbirds at dawn calling
yin and yang attracted
duality of life

(c) G.s.k. ’14

early morning songs
birds – bees and people living
together as one
