Three mid-winter haiku.
winter in my hut
drafts shivering the rainbows
I sit with my tea
thoughts and thinker? wrong
thoughts-thinker-thinking: all one!
pop goes the poseur
zafu guru says
two thoughts cannot co-exist
I dive in the gap

Thanks dear Louisa for introducing me to the delightful Rengetsu. I now feel like showered on the inside
Rengetsu is my inspiration as a woman-wanderer whose creativity never waned with her ageing, but increased. I’m glad you followed the links and met her too Nina! x
I love Rengetsu and her poem inscribed vessels – wonderful!
Thank you for visiting here Suzanne – I appreciate your comment. I’d love to pop an image of one of the bowls you mention into this comment, but it seems I can only insert a link. Here’s one of my favourites:
The world’s dust
here in my hermitage
I have all I need –
the wind in the pines.
Its wonderful! Thanks for sharing 🙂
