A Tree Frog's Eyes ~~ Excerpt from the Foreword

Category: Religion and Philosophy

It seems like some past age in a far different world when, as a displaced homeless nineteen-year old living on his aunt's dining room floor, I ventured into a rickety old second-hand bookstore and found, Zen Poems of China and Japan: The Crane's Bill , by Lucien Stryk and Takashi Ikemoto, 1973. I read this little treasure with wide-eyed fascination experiencing its ideas, reflections, and poetry, ... » Continue Reading

Into the Land of Mordor

Category: Writing and Poetry

I. Clothed in tattered grey a wise old fool was sent to teach the beings of Middle-Earth how to defeat Lord Sauron's rule—but instead he played with Hobbits in their mirth. Oh! But Gandalf knew a secret thing, a strange fact about these halfling kind, one had found Lord Sauron's ring forged to rule all and in the darkness bind... II. Unyielding to the ring's corruptive magic the simple Hobbit-folk... » Continue Reading

ジューシーなフルーツ / Don't forget YOU (do this for power)

Category: Life

There is great peace in the solitude of nature. This peace powerfully protects, recharges, and reenergizes the human spirit. In life's sojourn, I have found that I often need to take breaks from everyone and everything because I need some me-time. I am a very giving person and I constantly do a lot for others in service, so I do not feel selfish when I take me-time. I'm simply tending to my own me... » Continue Reading

All My Own

Category: Writing and Poetry

All My Own On a road well worn I was pushed along to reach the destination I was shown; I never really liked how it was paved and where it led was not where I would go. In time I came to where the road diverged and had to choose the route that I would take I stood there in the crossroads unimpressed for every road was paved and manicured. "Take a road that's safe" they said all pointing as if they... » Continue Reading

禅の詩人哲学者 (Zen poet-philosopher)

Category: Writing and Poetry

I have a deep love of Eastern poetry, especially Zen haiku, which I have studied and practiced since I was 19 years old and which has been a perfect fit for my own transient lifestyle as a wandering poet-philosopher (haijin). Here is a haiku that I wrote in Japanese and translated into English. The first line is the Japanese character language, the second line is Romaji, which is the western chara... » Continue Reading

Far Out Shit

Category: Writing and Poetry

Far Out Shit (a bit of a rap) I know it's extra—I'm always extra—but extra is where I'm apt to find the extraordinary in the extraordinaire you see, I always feel the original beyond the origination engulfed in the ingenuity of this mental conflagration that burns the living shit out of superficial mind crap— I tap the words of worlds, the whirs of whorls, spinning it out: yeah, they say, he's spi... » Continue Reading

Wail

Category: Writing and Poetry

I have seen the tortured minds of my generation rise out of the ashes of insanity naked in new birth born of one-night stands to fathers angry at street-level poverty looking for another damned fix segregated from their heavenly connections by pulpit charlatans who mock Jesus with their lies and foisted into a society rife with the embryonic anticipation of a litter of wide-eyed howling wolves— th... » Continue Reading
