Thread: Your Haiku!

    Morning news sweeps day
    As I linger in my cave,
    No gift above, nothing saved,

    Day unfolds in blue
    Sky with information done
    In print black as rave,

    I wander pages
    With my hand so strong and weak
    Morning news again is grave.

    see the entire universe nothing has ever been hidden."

    The dog barks,
    possum hears it,
    Home again.

    One fat crow,
    one dead branch
    the chicks are due!!!

    Summer breeze rustling through trees
    Song sparrow sings.
    Never the same note twice

    I am just a priest-in-training, any resemblance between what I post and actual teachings is purely coincidental.

    This is my first attempt at a Haiku. It was inspired by an experience I had yesterday while sitting Zazen on the bank of our bottom dam amongst a Dry Eucalypt Forest.

    Life's too serious to be taken seriously. Laugh at yourself and try to find the space to laugh at life's challenges. Be kind to yourself and look out for each other.

    Sitting in zazen
    Thoughts and feelings drift away
    At one with Nature.
