A haiku is not a poem, it is not literature; it is a hand becoming, 
a door half-opened, a mirror wiped clean.  It is a way of returning
to nature, to our moon nature, our cherry blossom nature, our 
falling leaf nature, in short, to our Buddha nature.  It is a way in
which the cold winter rain, the swallows of evening, even the very
day in its hotness, and the length of the night, become truly 
alive, share in our humanity, speak their own silent 
and expressive language.

–  Haiku: Eastern Culture, 1949, Volume Onep. 243.

I have realized that the past and future are real illusions,
that they exist in the present, which is what there is and all there is.

“Voidness is that which stands right in the middle between this and that.
The void is all-inclusive, having no opposite – there is nothing
which it excludes or opposes. It is living void because all forms come out of it
and whoever realizes the void is filled with life and power and the love of all
human beings.”

Our Zen Fountain — July 11, 2008   5 comments

The Water Flows

It’s hard for me to believe that it was six weeks ago
when I ordered the materials and began the preliminary
preparation for a fountain in our backyard.
There are many reasons why so long,
not the least of which was the delayed delivery of
the fountain pedestal, which finally can in yesterday.  

By working with nature, you can look into your own nature.

“The secret of life is enjoying
the passage of time
Any fool can do it”
