Dangly Bits And Traps

DANGLY BITS AND TRAPS

Then again
From a Zen
Or Dzogchen
Viewpoint – or Tao
Relax back into Now
Return – Release
Thought destroys Peace
Breeds Illusion
Confusion
All is One
With no one
Real to worry
To fret or hurry
From here to there
Be more than Aware
Ending up being less
And breathless
Breathe in – Breathe out
No mind what it’s all about

History

HISTORY

An empty cocoon
Abandoned, decays slowly
Its job accomplished

Opinion As Opiate

OPINION AS OPIATE

We call it the truth
Made up as we go along
So quick to protect
Then again why not relax?
Let uncertainty buoy us

A Gracious Pause: Four By Six

A GRACIOUS PAUSE

Don’t waste your precious time
Being such a smart-arse
Relax … Release … Reflect
Let things resolve themselves

Black Hole: Tanka

BLACK HOLE

Don’t give me a hug
Let me give you one instead
Though on second thoughts …

I see it’s all about fear
And we are all one big whole

Divine

DIVINE

Each new born moment
A fresh opportunity
To reseed Eden

Chase That Tail

CHASE THAT TAIL

One being
One moment
No escape
From or to

No need

Rice And Barley

RICE AND BARLEY

Two a misapprehension
There is only ever one
And yet are also two
No apprehension too

Like rice and barley
Found mixed up together
Letting go in the moment
Holding without grasping

Nothing To Sneeze At

NOTHING TO SNEEZE AT

My wife complained one day
At my sneezing with such gusto
I explained to her that it sprang
From my realisation that a sneeze
Is the respiratory system equivalent
Of an orgasm and therefore it is best
To simply just let go and fully enjoy it
She said I must be the only person who
Could manage to complicate a sneeze

And Then (8a)

AND THEN

Autumn leaves
As Winter arrives
Seems only
Yesterday
Leaves remained firmly attached
As we cling to life
