Ginger tea, Being simplified

Being Simplified


The sound of a bell reaching my ears.  
Let them rest, and go with it.  

Snow lightly falling.  
Let them rest, and go with it.  

One sip of lovely warm ginger tea
 in the mouth, 
 in the chest, 
    through the whole body.    
Let them rest, and go with it. 

All the thoughts arising,
all the feelings arising.

Let them rest, and go.

Loving light.



  the most precious beings in the world.

The sky covered with clouds.
Snow rain falling.

close my eyes and listen.

In the deep, deep blue light,
golden lamplight being lit one by one.

A soft friendly voice
 warmly permeating.


that is wide and deep,

shining dazzlingly

Endlessly giving

A day deepens.

Small December branches
below the hill.

A little bird
descending lightly 
on the small path nestling within a stone wall,
taking one step .  .  one step .  .

There I Look.

Soft wind.
Tranquil shade.

here comes the snow.

It definitely comes true, Kuroko's basketball

Shining with

Kuroko's basketball


It definitely comes true

When opening my eyes,

a group of doves
passing drawing a round circle   
right in front of me.

They are flying
low and wide almost as if touching the ground,  
high and wide above the sky.  

Soft shade.

One small step.

 everything that happens. 

One small step
he takes.


One courage 
    that changes everything.    

The basketball which Kuroko plays.

'Together' mind
that makes no distinction 
between you and I.

 Strong belief.
Consistent practice.

A dream definitely coming true.

Just waking up . . .

         Just waking up .   .   .

          Ah~ .   .   .
         like dreaming .   .   .

White snow falling warmly
in the soft wind.

Baby snowflakes being gently laid on the windowsill.

The kingdom of snow unfolding
in kind light. 

New day.
It begins.

Always in this place.

Let us nurture it.

Always in this place.

Precious things, 
they are growing.

Quince tea, Good night

Good night


A sip of quince tea
warmly enfolding me. 

The aroma of quince tea
delicately suffusing.

Kind light.

Yesterday's rain. 
Tree branches emerging themselves.
Yellow leaves sprinkled on the ground. 

Soft light.

It is heard,
if we listen.

It is
 here, now.

It is


       by our side.    

    Everything we dream of is

It twinkles

Lee Ufan, Dialogue  2008

The sound of wood 
burning in a fireplace. 

Following the breath flowing quietly,
a brush meets colour and,
the colour being laid down.

A line is drawn

again, again and again.  

The twinkling stars of the sky.
A twinkling white canvas.  
Two twinkling points.

Numerous lines.
Numerous breath.

Numerous minds being put down.

High and high
.    .    . 
Deep and deep
 .    .    .  

A beautiful and subtle world.

Same place.
Different world.

The treasure in our own pockets.

Let go

Joseph Walsh, Magnus Celestii  2014

  The wind blowing. 

The autumn light
getting tinged with red and yellow. 

Clean clothes.


one by one

I fold and put them down 

with mindless mind. 

The clothes being laid tenderly.  
A gentle smile.

things we need only.

Let go
of everything 
we don’t need.

It is there.

It is there.
Things more precious than what we want.  

All sharing

Mum's Happiness soup, Cosily enfold

Cosily enfold


What a lovely smell!

The soup mum has made.

Kind and fine look.

The sound of birds.

"Thank you~"

Whenever chewing each mouthful, 
light spreading deeply and gently.

which softly enfolds me.
Quiet afternoon sunlight.

Past and present,
inside and outside

mingled together clearly and mildly. 

A world 
where everything is tranquil and restful.
