SURPLUS TO REQUIREMENT

Go chew a while on the impotence of importance.

JUST SO

JUST SO

Where no beauty is
Look to the eye or the mind
Never the beauty

ENCOURAGEMENT

ENCOURAGEMENT

Veiled by cloud the sun
Still supplies sufficient light
To kindle the search

RICE AND BARLEY

RICE AND BARLEY

Two a misapprehension
There is only ever one
And yet are also two
No apprehension too

Like rice and barley
Found mixed up together
Letting go in the moment
Holding without grasping

This is based on an old Zen story, but sadly even though I recall the story and its moral I cannot relocate it. Anyone?

BELT AND BRACES

BELT AND BRACES

Even when drifting
In a cloud of unknowing
It’s a good idea
To keep your wits about you
After all you never know

PANORAMA

PANORAMA

Multiple lifelines
Coexisting seamlessly
Nature takes its course

NEEDLESSLY PERPLEXED

NEEDLESSLY PERPLEXED

Inner?
Outer?
Where shall I seek thee, Beauty?

BREATH III

BREATH III

You are here at last
Welcome to the now moment
Don’t try to hang on

THE MERRY DANCE

THE MERRY DANCE

Ah yes … Mindfulness
And her wayward twin sister
Distraction … Ah yes

BOUNDLESS

BOUNDLESS

Striving to remain
In the moment, yet of course
Without the striving
