Brother Bodhisattva

TTT!
A face, in the mirror.
The mirror emits no light;
the face shines!

(One Eye embraces all;
the camera gulps, "Swallow, swallow, swallow, swa.. ").

There's not enough solid-state memory in the Universe!

In this war no one winns.
Went shopping alone. I see the folks in the store. Blice faces, kids running around, a mess to finde the coffe pouder. Sallad and carots easy to finde. 20 min of time or somthing like thet?

Have it good.

Gravity and Society vs. Thee, and Thy Tea

From earliest times
what kept minds un-free
was gravity.

...falling!,
was a worry.

How could there
be any ease
In the Trees... ?

In recent times,

it's commercial "Culture".
Vehement behemoth!,

"always something", to
whipsaw us
to looking outward,
looking around
and looking-out.

What is this Mind,

unfree
from gravity

and from
whipsawing
by Society?

Un-told story.

In the city.
Critter.
Creeping
around,
on my own agen.

Seldom seen

This was,
a half day.
Tha buddha.
Is waiting.

To happen.
some is,
tired today.
Dont worry about it.
We are filling
sleepless sleep.
Water.
Blue liquid.

Green pads in grey dust;
Cacti, stacked for trash pick-up.
Spite! Flow'ring yellow!

Frost settles.
No wind,
No movement.
So quiet,
This night.

Grocery Day

When in the food store
it feels like a Buddha Hall;
I shop happily.

All talk is empty so why should realizing that change anything w/ regards to posting on the forum?

Empty, yes, but the Wisdom and Compassion in it is what might save Sentient beings ("Worldwide"). :lol2:

Well, let's see. Assuming that none of those need to be PROMISES, however... . :PP:

I.e., please complain. Please inquire. Please use "talk" as you see fit. But please DIRECT these projectiles at your Dharma-teacher! :lol2:

Here's a new post on the forum:

Practice-Haiku

"Continuous", yes;
Where's the choice about Dharma?
All moments, a gift!

"words limited"

yeah, i just found this on the rich resources of zfi :dance:

in appreciation

Ham

Yes, i am a dried
pigs left leg
called Ham,
hanging from a hook
in the butchers shop,
dreaming of the good times.
Another log on the fire,
10,000 frogs singing in the rain
burst into flames

well, that was about Ham, a dear friend, lol...
but now a worse horse 1, not pc, but about practice
don't read if you love horses

HORSE

if
when walking trough a field
you see a horse
lying down
on the ground
it may be asleep.

if
you approach it
and still it sleeps
poke it..
still asleep?
slap it..
still not moving?
kick it!

if
its dead
the stench
of its fart
will spread for
miles.

if
when walking trough a field
you see
a standing horse
approach it
cautiously.

if
it runs away
so what?

if
it stays
poke it..

if
then
it runs away
so what?

if
you probe him
and he stays
you have found
a friend.

just don't
kick him
because
he will kick back
and you may
not like it!

and just
maybe
you will be lucky
and ride
horseback
home.
