Islands

We are islands.
They are isolated by the sea.
Our skin is like the sea.
The skin borders our inside to the outside.
We are islands.
Every island has its own climate.
So do humans.
But we are one, islands are part of the whole world.
We are islands in a big world.

The last leaf

Strong standing against autumn’s regime,
Holding on to a memory of warmer days,
Coloured by the season,
The last leaf is leaving the branch,
Sliding through frosty air,
Finding its friends and family on the ground.

Understanding

There is no understanding.
There is no mind to understand.
There is only a heart to be opened.

Just feel the truth.
Just experience the wisdom.
Just live the way.

Reason destroys understanding.
Reason is another sphere.
Reason cannot jump into motion.

Our emotions know the truth.
Our heart feels the wisdom.
Our mind understands without words.

Sitting

We sit in the middle of the day, at night, in the morning.
We sit in a dojo, at home, in a park.
We sit when we walk, talk, laugh.
We sit whenever we breathe.
We sit when we are.
We sit now.
We sit.
