Dried tangerine peels, Lah Lah ~ Li Li ~ Li Lah ~ Lah

Lah Lah ~ Li Li ~ Li Lah ~ Lah


In tender light,
the kindness that is looking at us with warmth.

The rain and sunshine.
The earth and sky.
The air and soil.

Take a rest

following our heart.

And be
always here.

Breathe, my dear...



Breathe in,
breathe out.




I know that I am breathing in,

I know that I am breathing out.






Do easy things.

All kinds of sounds twittering.
All sorts of things coming and going.

The birdsong
that makes a mountain deeper.

It becomes
a mountain that snugly, silently deepens.

Cultivate and cultivate
our mind and body,
do it again and again

like petals falling
in a quiet place of no wind.

Grateful for everything different from me, Silver Spoon

Shining with

Silver Spoon


Grateful for
everything different from me

Hachiken sitting on the back of a horse with his back straight.
The mind and body cringing disappear.
The world he sees for the first time.

The landscape we cannot see on our own.

Different types,
different values,
different environments born and raised.
What the unknown brings us.

The world that shines quietly and brightly.

The wind mixed with autumn.
Glittering leaves.

A fresh, verdant shade.

Hearing the sound of cicadas,
not hearing the sound of cicadas,
  both are summer.

Returning to wisdom

The clear, transparent sound of birds singing
in the arms of morning rain showers.

The grand sound of thunder.

Let the mind land
in the cool shade:

A fearful mind,
an anxious mind,
an angry mind,
a worried mind,
a foolish mind.

There is
no likes and dislikes,
no taking what we want and throwing away what we don’t want.

Take a deep breath

being enfolded in kind mist
with tender light.

Look brightly
all the time.
