"Letting go of our attachments is something we should practice mindfully in our daily lives.
Otherwise we cannot maintain a calm and clear mind at the last moment of our lives....
When a tree is cut and falls, it comes down on the heavier side, the side with many branches.
Since the departed spirit usually follows its attachment, the practice of non attachment is very important when one is dying...."

- DoSung Yoo  A Practical Guide to the Heart Sutra, 132,133

sleepless

charging sorrow
hits hard
you fall

calling out his name
in a singsong
childhood beckon
he wouldn't
recall

not now
no never

sleepless
yes
still shared
wherever
is is to him

it's all

images

new painting on a day drenched in water

seeing them in dawn where they woke me up with a start

why not

they are ready to work with me now

"Elusive and unreliable as it is, the wise man straightens out his restless, agitated mind,
like a fletcher crafting an arrow." - Dhammapada 3.33


I hear moktak
in the train warning
or reversing truck

wake up, wake up

your blue hands hold the

bow
the bowing wood
the bent finger triggered
by 108 flexes
that fletch
before
straightening
the mind
