Blessings and benefits; November 20 renga

“The life of a person of Nembutsu is life in the joy of faith.”
~ Zuiken Inagaki

positive thinking,
visualizing goodness,
ripples like water

in the calm pond where lotus
bloom and their seeds fall freely

around the statue
of the figure head always
smiling for us all

(g) down time… (7.12)

down time…

some nine miles even
trod before and after plans;
soon to find relief

in perhaps an easier
night of actual sleeping

too much tossing and
turning caused an early rise;
looking for ends day

rally tally

early gathering
for the holiday – in-laws,
three generations

cousins, nieces, nephews and
all the elders celebrate

before the sun sets
yet after the rains poured through –
al fresco dining

morning walk was short-
then rain…errands, misty – and
an afternoon jaunt

followed by more chilled rain – how
many weekends in a row

has it been since the
sun has been out all the day –
summer weather hides

absorbed and absent
(renga)

distracted by spring…
cleaning and the rain, I missed
another gem post

yesterday; rain continues
no outside play or walking

still dancing to my
music while packing away
my winter blankets

service with a smile
(renga)

a cool May morning
stroll about; unexpected
service call – waited…

hired to topseal the driveway;
the job is done and paid for

my car, on the street
for the night – instead of in
the garage… I’ll live…

(g) en passant? (5.22)

en passant?
(renga)

morning walk between
the dry and damp sky; her face –
so we meet again

I just walk; She runs and walks
perhaps training for a race?

maybe next time we
will exchange more words than
‘hello’ and ‘nice weather’

en passant = French for ‘in passing’ though mostly used for a
chess capture move…it fits as a title here.
