on the nose of the puppy


staying up most of the night working on poems 

oh lonely bones - can’t you rest 

why should i 

even now a strong wind carries 

some pine seeds to the earth 

even now the boats slide 

down the long sacramento river to the bay 

a new day begins and i am alive

-jobe


define life

it is the lone snowflake

that landed on the nose

of the puppy

-jobe


silver bullets stop 

the werewolf dead in his tracks 

the full moon shines on 

-jobe 


Wealth should serve humanity, not vice versa.

-Dalai Lama XIV


You are alive, so be fully alive.

-Wendy Egyoku Nakao Roshi


When facing a single tree, if you look at a single one of its red leaves, you will not see all the others.

-Takuan Sōhō


An awake heart is like a sky that pours light.

-Hafez
