2 years

have passed
I don't have a Master's which had been considered
or a cat
another option out
but
my husband got sicker
and I stopped blaming him for him
and decided to love all of this -
the unseen
the stubborn
the lost
the what if
and the what wasn't
and the what is

who knows what hold the past has broken?

work

too much
too little
with holes

all told
whole life
isn't too bad

change

grew a forest of kalanchoe
flowering out
from the inner dark
of  brain and stem

question

mother, can you see me here
it's a cold place
where my kind are rare
as, perhaps, they always are
(you'd say)
I'm lonely as
Willy's clouds
or
a single drop of rain

mother, tell me,
have we considered forgiveness

are we done with one another ?


can we feel, mother,
the undone other
and his mother

within?





a very short introduction

to
the
next appointment
(destiny)


meeting you

meeting you
orange roses
Kerala pickles and
book drowned Nazis

clap sensei

what
is
this?


Ison

meet the sun
done

one un
done.

dogen's done

said let's see more now than before



message


in this year of stupendous ups and downs

today let's be thankful for the small miracles Life offers us

and may we gather our strength and will to create a positive 2014

filled with genuine Buddhist serenity, generosity towards others,

and unprecedented artistic achievements.

Love is difficult.

And then we love some more

thanksgiving

the light that comes
before it reaches
an end
one candle
two

the Dhamma says
"coming home after being gone a long time"

had a dinner of smoked trout

you were under water.

we saw a movie about the sea

and another about a pool,

fools and wise men in both.

we fought and walked, later wept.

you slept in sweat, three times changing your clothes.
