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
it is the lone snowflake
that landed on the nose
of the puppy
silver bullets stop
the werewolf dead in his tracks
the full moon shines on
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.
An awake heart is like a sky that pours light.
