Vast and ShiningPosted: June 23, 2016
Here are some poems that I wrote after participating in a weekend zen retreat that left me feeling settled, gathered, animated and awake:
Bright as a drop of dew in dawns first light
Clearly shining in all directions
Like an explosion of a newborn star
Inconceivably vast, subtle and serene; exquisite in all seasons
Returning to the source, forgetting who
I am at ease, curious and full of joy.
Infinite and vast
How can there be any lack?
Clear and bright, vast and shining
The subtle source radiates in all directions
I laugh out loud, returning
To cool air and a steaming cup of tea.
