    A haiku I thought of after a session of zazen:

    Sitting here, serene
    On a warm spring afternoon
    Crickets chirp outside

    I recently had an older haiku translated into Chinese, which was nice!

    night rain
    in every puddle
    a different moon


    (Third Place, 2018 International Kusamakura Haiku Competition)


    Chinese Translation (Traditional)

    夜雨
    在每個水坑里
    不同的月亮

    Chinese Translation (Simplified)

    夜雨
    在每个水坑里
    不同的月亮

    Cherry blossom falls
    Not rushing nor abating;
    Just petal to ground

    The beginning of my practice was characterized by a lot of introspection about how short life is and how people try to cling to it. I remembered a time at my first job where I mentioned I couldn't wait to get off work and enjoy my weekend, and one of the older employees told me, "Don't wish your life away."
    I watched as the cherry blossoms at my work place drifted to the ground and was reminded of this moment, and how the blossom neither clings to the moment of falling or hurries to the ground, and how I should be like that.
    Just being.

    Gassho,

    no wind in the net
    nor hope in heaven
    just black sea on

    no wind in the net
    idea of mind dukkha
    true mind suffer

    not afraid of
    i roll the wheels on and
    current carry me on

    nor shadow frighten
    with memories like
    the shallow deep

    still fight still hope
    bit wind in the net for me
    hands full emptiness

    her arms reaches
    through an awakening
    true dharma eye

    Rain during Zazen
    Now rain drops remind me of
    Sekishi sharing

    What is my story?
    Just memories from my life
    But memories change

    With dharma friends we
    Create memories so our
    Story is dharma

    Being a novice priest doesn't mean that my writing about the Dharma is more substantial than yours. Actually, it might well be the other way round.

    Some crows...

    village bench
    three jackdaws argue
    over a beer can

    so sudden
    this autumn twilight
    roosting rooks

    burial mound
    the wind summons
    another crow

    A fellow haiku poet is running a course called Haiku of the Senses, which focusses on each of the human senses in writing poetry.

    He asked if he could use this one of mine as an example for taste which was nice...

    This week a Chinese haiku poet, Chen-ou Liu, translated one of my poems from 2018 into Chinese and posted it on her blog:

    As I lit a candle and took refuge this morning my cat was very busy scratching away and this came to mind, made me chuckle...

    Before sitting the Weekly Zazenkai (last part) early this morning, I looked at the sky and it was a beautiful purple color with only the Morning Star in it. This verses just came to my mind:
