Born into Heaven
Corrupted as We so Choose
How Does One Return?


I look forward to seeing some more haikus and what not on this site. Dave the one with the fish I like very much.

Shiki

As we trim the light,
The dolls presenting shadows,
Each reveils its own.

I love catnip mice
That's why I bite their heads off
They're good for breakfast

This isn't haiku, but I still like it.

The water is a mirror,
I cannot see the bottom,
Yet, I feel ashamed,
For the bottom can see me clearly

Perhaps someone a bit more reflective could tie this into our training?

Here's another one I remembered:

"Though it does not mindfully keep guard,
The scarecrow, standing in the fields,
does not stand in vain."

If I recall correctly, that was written by Takuan Soho.
