    Sunday Practice

    A silent spider
    Sitting perfectly tranquil
    My thoughts to observe

    You?

    A jumping sandflea
    Going here and there and here
    My thoughts observe me

    Hi.

    A young boy smiles
    picks up a stick
    And laughs

    A summer's night sky
    Stars hanging over my bed
    Beacons for my dreams

    Good night.

    This young man often feels
    More like an old fool than a boy
    Ironic life, isn't it?

    Yellow Sun and green trees,
    Red sun gives red trees,
    And then, no Sun gives nothing to see...
    ironic, isn't?

    Lost in distractions,
    the present moment
    slips by unnoticed

    When the night falls
    suddenly an owl brakes the silence
    A strange bird

    Right, wrong, better, worse
    Opinions, views, mind-candy
    My thoughts betray me

    I woke early
    To a fierce thunderstorm
    I laid awake in awe

    Ancient koan asks
    My mind goes 'round in reply
    My dog Jake just smiles

    Re: Sunday Practice

    Sitting with the misty mountains
    Loneliness, fear creep in
    My mind suddenly a frantic storm
    Still, I sit as the mountain
    For that, I am proud

    Care to Renga?

    Ever heard of Japanese "Renga" poetry?
    As I understand, one poem is composed by two or more people, working in harmony. Neither owning the result. How Zen is that?
    Renga is composed using five lines, with the first three resembling haiku in following a 5-7-5 syllable-per-line count and the fourth and fifth lines containing seven syllables each.
    I only just started trying haiku with the first post here. I think my feeble attempts are more "hope-so" than haiku, but would anyone be so kind as to help finish this? It needs two more lines of 7 syllables each, along the same theme:

    This past, that future
    Re-writing and becoming
    Mind wasting my time

    Gassho,

    Gassho,
    Mind time may seem time wasted
    But mined mind time, a gold mine! :mrgreen:

    More of a response than anything :P

    It's all good.
    Harmony is in the effort; the collaboration.

    Ideas of emptiness and awakening,
    Boggle my mind,
    The sound of rain, I much prefer.

    Too many running thoughts on emptiness, it's amazing what our minds can come up with and how we are so likely to believe those thoughts :P

    Gassho from someone who really thought he didn't exist for a few seconds there,
    Taylor
