Ryoanji 龍安寺 The temple of the dragon at peace  

Tiny, tiny white gravel 
being touched gently  
every day.

The stones, moss, trees, soil, wall, tile roof.  
The warmth of sunlight.

The serene place with no breath of wind.

It takes away
all the trying hard.

‘Now’ that is not on the clock.
‘Here’ that is not on the map.  


Do it 
again and again.

The time of wisdom, for more than 600 years.
With a single unshakable mind.

Leaves falling 
in the place with no breath of wind.

All things are done 
We only need to do.  

A tear of gratitude.
A smile.
