Changing Goals – Shuukan_two – March 19, 2015

shuukan haiga two_19_small


two points of view
goals shift in the dawn
like wayward arrows

we live together
Eeyore, Winnie and I
in one soul
glimpsing illumination
while – bemoaning thorny paths

This is linked to Carpe Diem Shuukan:

Each arrow flies differently. You can shoot a thousand arrows and each one will follow a different trajectory: that is the way of the bow.

Zen Haiku – February 11, 2014

Winnie Pooh

Ah – zen mind wu-wei
moving without intension
sunrise in the morn

without a klesa*
without begging daily bread
the way is still clear

reflecting this morn
upon the way of darma
where’s the teddy bear

no temple bells ring
just birds singing in the sky

eat when you’re hungry
when you’re tired sleep – don’t reason
the pooh will show you
