  1. Shikantaza is beautiful – A beautiful word. So much beyond zazen. And Zazen is ineffably beautiful – A beautiful word, so much beyond sitting meditation.

    sitting in a medical office
    awaiting my beloved –
    cancer as a friend? Sit with that

    And yet
    the only place to be
    sans suffering
    is Shikantaza.
    Thank you Blanche.
    Thank you Dogen.
    Thank you Shundo

    The dharma bell peels.
    My body feels this,
    as i dry the tears.
