A handful of Autumnal leaves scattered

(boring brown, pumpkin orange, rust aflame)

on the meditation table this morning.

A distraction from the usual meditation

thoughts: sleepy worries, hungry ghosts.

 

Oh, but I want to see

the world itself!

The flash of a trout tail

on the surface

Call of geese towards

an unbroken world

This heart once wise

as the stars
