ABOUT A JOURNEY - 24/march/2012

READING IKKYU ON X53
WEYMOUTH/BRIDPORT
FOR
MORNING MEDITATION
@
THE CHAPEL IN THE GARDEN :
MY "WILD WAYS"!
*

(1)
ON THE WAY
MAGNOLIA
SUDDENLY IN FULL BLOOM

(2)
WE STOP AGAIN
BESIDE MYSELF
A STONE WALL

(3)
CATCH SIGHT OF ST.CAT'S
NO LITTLE MOUNTAIN
TO CLIMB

(4)
SLOWER AND SLOWER
THRU NARROW STREETS
WE SPREAD-OUT ON SEATS

(5)
"JUST DO IT" LOGO ON HIS CAP
FELLOW-TRAVELLER
NODDING-OFF

(6)
CAT'S EYES
AND MOO-COWS
LOOKING OUT TO SEA

(7)
WE PASS
THE CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY
PREMATURELY

(8)
WE ARRIVE IN WEST BAY
BODDHIDHARMA WOULD NOT
HAVE LEFT THIS PLACE

(9)
EYES WIDE-OPEN
HEART OF BLISS
ENDING JOURNEY
NEED A PISS.

  1. Sweet sequence Bernard! And NOT thinking of Ikkyu but you! That is, the B H way that's more & more identifiable. But, of course, half a reading life youve had with those ancients, brought back to life as we tap in again & again. Good stuff!
