Oct 20 – 26

Cold cliff
dead tree
this knobby-pated me
thinks there’s nothing better than a poem.
I mock myself, writing
in the dust, and
damn the man who penned the first word
and steered so many astray.

Nansen’s Knowing Is Not The Way

Nansen said, “Mind is not the Buddha, knowing is not the Way.”


The sky clears, the sun shines bright,
The rain comes, the earth gets wet.
He opens his heart and expounds the whole secret,
But I fear he is little appreciated.
