November Rain

Windows stained by droplets,
Puddles with ripples on the surface.

Dry and calm inside,
Stormy and wet outside.

Fall turns to winter,
Rain to snow,
Water to ice.


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.


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.


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.
