The spring of joy

 

"In Zen there is no next."

Zen saying 

 

"One who believes that 

Peace and feedom are

Not available here and now,

Requiring time,

Requiring the future in which to find it,

Must believe in the

Ill-formed idea of practice."

                             Wu Hsin

 

 

 

When there is no next

 

all expectations cease

 

in wonderful peace

 

Stories of worries

 

fall silent

 

in sparkling ease

 

Spring is melting the cold

 

Rivers of light wash away the old

 

Flowers bloom and hidden birds are singing

 

Nothing to add just

 

simply

 

be
