Zen Day #6 – Haiku



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!

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/
