Final Zen Day #7 – Haiku

Blossom

Meditation is like the perfect blossom

You catch it

And let go

Miao He

Day#6 – The Key

That key does not open the lock

Breathe deeply and see

There is nothing to open

– Miao He

Day #5- Calm Beneath the Water
Great waves wash over the seas of my mind
The waters are calm beneath the surface
I release the anchor and sink
But do not drown
Miao He

My brothers and I enjoying a tea ceremony to reflect on our first weeks together

Day #4 – Meditation
Walking through a forest at night
the last hour before dawn is the darkest
Timelessness holds you
Until it is time to greet the sun
Miao He

Beautiful light patches on a snowy night

Day #3 – Grey Blues
Grey town bums solemnly sit
Wandering lost or hopeful
Heavy pockets stay heavy

– Miao He

Some things are better enjoyed together

Day #2 ~
Is it a zen poem or a haiku?

It is neither
It is both

– Miao He / Miao Zhi

Snowy escapes with the animals allow me to free my mind from any of the days distractions

Day #1 Mountain Top
Sat atop the mountain
There is clarity in the void
Float down the spring on a breathe
And climb back up

– Miao He

Odin the white mountain dog!

Postscript –
My sister is starting up a blog and now more than ever her content is relevant with keeping clarity in your day and breathing properly. Thich-Naht-Hahn wrote in his book that the Buddhist Sutra ‘The full awareness of breathing’ by learning to simply breathe with full appreciation we can improve all aspects of our life and even reach enlightenment, give it a try today ; https://howtobreathedeep.wordpress.com/
Much of my inspiration has come from some of the absolute Zen greats, my good friend and brother Miao Zhi shown me this fantastic book and ive been reading it since, here is a brief outline of it all;
