sitting meditation--not for the faint-hearted--we run in circles
ZAZEN


Begin with desperation
devoted to a cool, liquid vow
of drowning all desire.
Drenched in sweat,
sit.
No doubt such small mind
shapes this duel
of aspiration and inspiration.
Dwelling in the space
between breaths
begin with desperation.
Between breaths,
dwelling in the space
of aspiration and inspiration
shapes this duel.
No doubt, such small mind.
Sit.
Drenched in sweat,
of drowning all desire.
Devoted to a cool, liquid vow,
begin with desperation.
