From Still Point – November 2010 – Untitled Poem

By Genko Rainwater (from August 28, 2010)

On Saturday afternoon of the Cultivating the Way sesshin I went to sit in the Zendo before the scheduled evening sitting, and was rewarded this way.

Retreat-smalldancing leaves shadows
play a symphony in light
on bare zendo floor

Seido lighting lamps
weaving in and out around
provides counterpoint

shadows move, light fades
we turn toward evening zazen
densho bell sounds clear
