A perfect silence.

When I die, I want the darkness

To take me. Nonexistence,

The dance without dancers or music.

A perfect emptiness.

A perfect silence. 

There will be, for all of us, 

A final exhale. At some point.

Probably not today. 


I am no longer young. 

The master never speaks now

When he throws in more straw. 

In this pen, I am alone.


A genius is the one most like himself.

-Thelonious Monk

Life, according to Zen, should be lived as a bird flies through the air, or as a fish swims in water. 

-D. T. Suzuki

We do have the potential to awaken, but we must do the hard work of distinguishing when we are motivated by greed, hatred, and delusion, and when we are motivated by their opposites—generosity, kindness, and wisdom.

-Lynn Kelly
