“Regarding Wave” In The Zen Garden   6 comments

The Zen Garden In The Huntington Japanese Garden, San Marino, California — Images by kenne

Regarding Wave

The voice of the Dharma

       the voice


A shimmering bell

       through all.

Every hill,    still.

Every tree alive. Every leaf.

All the slopes  flow.

       old woods, new seedlings,

       tall grasses plumes.

Dark hollows;  peaks of light.

  wind stirs    the cool side

Each leaf living.

       All the hills.

         The Voice

         is a wife


         him still.

                    Gary Snyder

    One of my favorite places to visit when we are in southern California. And, Gary Snyder is one of my favorite poets. He is able to feel that Zen thing.– kenne
