A FEW HAIKU


HAIKU #2

even gods are born,
and so, too, must die; plums fall
from the tree, when ripe.


HAIKU #3

bitter medicine:
often necessary, but
unpleasant to take.


HAIKU #9

wallet is empty,
but apples and oranges
fill the fruit basket.


HAIKU #16

birth, Awakening,
and final Nirvana; how
lotus flowers bloom!


HAIKU #22

hearing the Dharma:
sunday morning, a bird sings
outside the temple.
