singer of sea songs, swimmer of seas, a dancing breeze, i live in the sway of trees. i wear purple in my eyes, green on my lips, a halo of nothingness flows over me, a puddle of gathering questions at my feet. flaming petals flaming fish flaming heart, there’s the ash of me. perceiver of light, see me in the dark-gowned pirouetting dream. moon gazing white, set alight by the sun. seeing everything, remaining unseen. wanting everything, taking nothing. this is where moths come to breathe.

zazen life.

zazen death.

“The eagle perched above her empty nest
can go now. Because settling in and listening
to what remains of her fading sorrow
is becoming less important
than surfacing elsewhere,
breathing in new air
of a nurturing current
as she regally soars.”

VI

A dark bird
pecks at night’s quiet
in a dream.

VII

Climbing sun
anchors the sky
blazing blue.

VIII

Dark skies
melting notes of light
slowing spirit.

IX

A gliding scar interrupts
the might of the sky
blue becomes bluer.

X

Unconquerable
the sun at high noon
till earth turns.

I

Green tea
brewing twilight
in a teapot.

II

Count of bars
in the cage of time
tick tock tick.

III

Among leaves
a wasp’s nest lies
shattered.

IV

Shallow pond
two frogs floating
one alive.

V

Sun rises
dusty light nudges
sleep awake.

My island of monsoon –

sun shines through
sheets of rain
the whistle
of the wind
clear.

rainbows are,
disappear and
are again.

a playground in
sky’s wilderness.

The long shadows
of my mind’s night
my true

north.

I brew the
alchemy of wisdom
healed by my

heart.

The fever of sleep
in my skin

tugs me in gently.
Falling in,

the dark sea dances
me a fata morgana

of wrath and peace
of peace and wrath.

I have strayed
away and into

the duality of being;
all is dark, all is dance.
