Zen Poetry

Hey everyone.  I wrote a poem today upon the basis of Honkyoku.  I felt I should share it here on the forum.  If anyone else wants to share poetry , feel free.


                                   A Multitude of serene colors
                              Expelled from the midst of a hollow bell
                                        Not Seen, But heard
                                       Not heard, But known
                           Yet they dissolve to oblivion in an instant
                             Leaving only 1 instance to be known.


“What sort of person are you, really, inside and what lies concealed there?”—the shakuhachi will undoubtedly supply the answer"
       
              (taken from: "Take No Kokoro" by by Kurahashi Yodo Sensei)

Re: Zen Poetry

How can a fellow get to heaven
With an arse like an anvil and a head like a Boeing 747

The Master asked "Does it make sense to you?"
The fool replied "I do, I do!".

              and

ornamental garden -
breaking the pond's glaze
a coy's fleshy lips


Regards,

Harry.

Re: Zen Poetry

Shakuhachi makes me hungry...
moreso than pastels...
moreso than food.

It's better than sex.
It's quicker than waiting for the lottery.
Less startling than thunder and less painful than lightning.

Shakuhachi is an earthquake...
fulmination of the soul...
murmurs of the heart.

Zakarius
