This Is Your Life

From Sitting In Meditation Retreat

 

This is your life.

You sit here quietly

Watching your body breathe

Without you.

 

Except now you notice

Your somatic reality

You feel the wonder…

But who exactly is this?

 

Upstairs someone walks.

A floorboard shifts.

Poem From A Korean Zen Retreat

 

A handful of cherry blossom,

Wind blown and water fallen.

The river does not discriminate

Between individual petals.

 

If you miss this moment

Your life is over

Before you know it.

 

A petal on water

Dissolves.
