The moon is still dark
I know what is still missing
It’s five syllables!

Sometimes the best thoughts are those left unfinished 🙂

I agree. Words have their limitations. Yet they have their uses.
A moment poised
Echoing off down the ages
With a come hither eyelash
And little in mind but to shimmer without resolution
As the unspoken exclamation shifts
From “what a phenomenon!”
To “what a sensation!”
While with a flick of the wrist
And a slip of the lip
The magician in you melts away
(From “PEELING POTATOES (QUANTUM SONG)”
~~~~~ ~ ~~~~~
Eat the stale rôle
Find a new world
I stood at the end of the road
The sign pointed south
I turned east
The sign pointed east
I turned north
The sign pointed north
I turned west
The sign pointed west
I climbed the signpost
As a blind man a white stick
There was no more time
And only the alley was blind
But then they can also be misread of course.
Misreads a karmic signpost
Reborn a bunny

LOOKING FOR GOD
The Old Prophet went up into the mountains in search of God, and there he had a great Realisation.
And when he returned again to the tents of his people, they gathered round him and said, “Tell us, O Prophet, what manner of creature is this God?”
And he looked at them for a long moment, deep in thought.
And finally he said, slowly and unblinkingly, “God is a verb.”
And behold, the people bowed down and worshipped dictionaries.
From “The Book Of Guff”.

Yes, it gives me a smile too. 🙂
One of my favorite Haiku’s by my next door neighbor is so great that I tempted to post, but should really reach out to get permission. Will plan to do that one day. 🙂
Then I may get to read it one day?
Yes: the moon remains dark
Only while time remains suspended. 🙂

“You should stop words and letters, and learn to withdraw and reflect on yourself. When you do so, your body and mind will naturally fall away, and your original Buddha nature will appear.” – Dogen.
