a zen story

“Are you awake?”, said the monk.

“Yes,” I replied. “I have become content in my irrelevance.”

“Oh good!”, said the monk.

I beamed, enlightenment had found me at last.

We sat and admired the autumn stream. Eddying leaves tracing a path that the heavens might follow.

After some time he cleared his throat, then turned to me and said, “Just one thing, where is the you that has become content?”

a poem

our backs
curve under
dandelions
blowing
like ruins

& at the end
of a trail
once lost
we give thanks
to a shamble
of life-keeping
stones placed
in the long ago
by those
who knew to
be cool,

that each
completes
the other,

& today,

anything
is possible

a poem

the truth
of you
feels light
in my
hand as
I follow
drops of
easy sun
on flesh
settling back
to wait
in the
moist world
now warming
to fresh
thoughts of
all we
might do
given time
