    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,

    scent of autumn leaves
    the lovely smell of decay

    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

    Banyon tree

    She doesn’t compare
    Doesn’t need approval yet
    All love her


    Most of my haiku are 5-7-5 but this just flowed out. Have published over 300 on instagram and approaching 500 followers at #notmovingmind many have pics. How do you post pics here?

    Gassho,
    Kotei sat/lah today.

    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.

    Like the setting sun they have gone
    Their presence marked by scattered toys and treats
    And of course, their fur remains
