Hello everyone. My sleeping schedule is all messed up because I helped my job out with three weeks of overnights and am now trying to convert back to days. As a result I was wide awake at 2am this morning. I took the opportunity for some long sessions of zazen. I then starting reading a lot of zen poems online. So as a result of all of that I thought I would start a thread for Zen/Buddhist poems. Or simply poems that touch you or your practice deeply. Or maybe a poem of your own.
This has always been one that has stuck with me for many many years:
