autumn with Soin

Beckoning me?

Surely not –

pampas grass

autumn with Sogi

In pine wind

bellsounds shower down

with evening rain.

morning sky

Chat about the snow

on Fuji’s peak–

and summer is no more

mindforest“When I look at the trees in front of me, my mind does not go outside of me into the forest, nor does it open a door to let the trees in. My mind fixes on the trees, but they are not a distant object. My mind and trees are one. The trees are only one of the miraculous manifestations of the mind.”

~Thich Nhat Hanh (The Sun My Heart)
