From the Koans of Dogen:

On the tips of ten thousand grasses,
each and every dewdrop contains the light of the moon.
Since the beginning of time,
not a single droplet has been forgotten.
Although this is so,
some may realize it, and some may not.


A Verse I write, yet never the owner of:

Planted in a garden with care,
Unaware of its future estate.
While wheat is only a weed while it grows,
it contains more than the stalk and chaff below.

From one grain of wheat,
an entire field yields;
From the grain the bread;
From the bread a family eats;
From the family a new soul enters the stream,
unaware of Spring's dew and rain within.

Although the dew drop first fell on the field,
it now becomes a soul entering the ocean above.
From start to finish,
YOU and THIS as ONE.

Well I said it here in Cornwall UK, in real time so I might as well write it:

"That was nice. Thank you".

Even though it's always the day after yesterday, I read this in your past with gratitude.
