Transient Reflection No.1

Even fleeting moments
Never were
But transient reflections,
Appearing densities,
Only to fade just as easily
In timeless flux—
The moon-cast shadows
Of crooked pine
Dissapear as the shoji screen
Slides open
Revealing the dark night
And endless transformations.

The Boundless Nature of Truth No.1

The Boundless Nature of Truth No.1 - 2021



The towering aspen tree,
Its leaves flickering in the breeze—

The mid-day sun light
Shimmering across the rippling water—

The quiet mind,
Unoccupied by events,
Like a crystal,
Reflects the shining
Nature of Truth.

Gesture No. 5


Like shells, skin
Attached but separate
Like all
The colours of motion
Spin and turn in splendour
And yet the unmoved
Watching, being
Involved yet

The Inclusive Nature of Events No.1

The Inclusive Nature of Events No.1

The wild cry of the child on the beach,
Muted into the atmosphere amidst
The multitude of voices—

The hot sun casting down
Upon umbrellas, bodies, sand,
And sending its glistening glare
off the wavy water in infinite directions—

The "day" is not,
But only this,
This measureless motion,
This endless sky,
This absorbing beauty.

The Moment of Reflection - Part 2

As the glowing orange sun
Continues to reveal its fiery existence
The dim yet profound essence
So permeating at dawn
Is filled with warmth and action—

The city morning noises do send waves
And ripples into the infinitely sensitive
Pure waters of life.
The motion thus reflects the physics
Of the immediate environs
And the humility of oneness
Seeps in, in unconditional surrender—

Eyes closed, set aglow by the intensifying sphere
Amidst the world's physique, and with the world's physique
The vast essence of purity remains


The Moment of Reflection No.1

The Moment of Reflection - Part 1

As the cacophonous fragments
Gradually dissolved
There remained the
Pure sea of weightless depth
So clean and clear
Like a trickling brook
Through the jagged granite mountain slope—

Have I dipped my fingers into
The cool waters of the essence of life?
Like the serenity of a calm lake
Reflecting the orange light of the emerging sun
Does this sweet energy permeate
As I bask in it, this invisible and indescribable
Boundless delicacy

The Moment of Reflection No.1

The Humbling Sun


The humbling sun,
Our earthly mother,
In your sight,
How can wars persist?
Life itself are we
As we hustle about
And sit and pray
For real peace,
A true reflection
Of our fiery source
Of which we are,
Life itself.
