IT’S AS SIMPLE AS THAT

Here today, gone tomorrow.

PLAY ON

PLAY ON

We learn many things
Yet remember very few
So the game proceeds

KNUCKLING DOWN

KNUCKLING DOWN

The primal question
Within this time of waiting
How best to fill it

BRIEF

BRIEF

The body? Clothing.
Decay? Inevitable.
Task? Observation.

ANOTHER SLICE THEN

ANOTHER SLICE THEN

Obviate
All disappointment
Banish fear
Hope, desire
And expectation and look
Life’s a piece of cake

STRUGGLING UPHILL

STRUGGLING UPHILL

You learn
Something new
Every day

But you forget
Half of it
By teatime

A JUDGEMENT ON JUDGEMENT

A JUDGEMENT ON JUDGEMENT

What shall we make of our life?

A worldwide sightseeing tour
Or else a fault-finding mission?

For we shall never find a fault
Beyond those t’was we defined?

POKER

POKER

The future, unborn
Promises pain and pleasure
We shuffle and deal

DŌGEN ZENJI

DŌGEN ZENJI

A living haiku
The satori of my life
Don’t mind if I do

THE CUSHION

THE CUSHION

All day long
The ten thousand things
Black and white
Yes and no
One thing after another
Back to the cushion
