November 3 tanka

“The cloud of light is unhindered, like open sky;
There is nothing that impedes it.
Every being is nurtured by this light,
So take refuge in Amida, the one beyond conception.”
~ Shrinran

miles from a dwelling –
that structure; walls and windows –
with you I am home

peace comes with your light; with your
smile, nurturing, and humor

A home
For an unused
Unicycle from a chance
Meeting…

We
Offered a
Uni-cyclist we saw
Ours – and he said;
Yes!

Now
He can
Find a home
For wheel with a
seat!

A weed in the garden is really any plant growing where you don’t want it.
A rose bush could be a weed – Some say a dandelion is a weed – while
others dine on its new young leaves and make wine! Always know your
plants before touching them and or eating them. Knowledge is power.
