Little Red Fishes in A Crowd

February 4th, 2007 No comments

I saw some red fishes
Swimming in the crowd
At the Pompidou centre
They cried out loud
Come and swim with us
You’ll enjoy yourself
Come swim til dawn
Come swim all night
At the Pompidou centre
In the sea of the crowd
Cried the little red fishes
Swimming out loud

The Little Red Fishes ..  a special thank you to good old (dead) Matisse

Who Am I?

January 27th, 2007 No comments

Just so you know,
who I am.
I have come,
To take you away.
From the things,
That keep you afraid.
And the lies,
Of which you were made.

It’s Not All Bad. A Picture And A Poem.

White Snow Clings 

White snow clings to the roofs of the cars.
Fresh daisies on my windowsill.
Every moment is perfect.
My zen teacher told me.
Even his death.
Dying trying to save.
His baby daughter Maya.
Drowning in a lake in Switzerland.
Which held so many perfect moments.
And was so deep as never known.

(in honour of Kobun Chino Roshi And His Daughter Maya) 
Winter Arrived This Morning

Haiku: Frog Pond

January 18th, 2007 No comments

Frog pond afternoon.
All’s quiet until the dusk breaks.
Croak, croak, croak, croak, croak.
