True color, mokuran

Right in the midst of this beautiful life, bumpy and vast, a poem to express what a priest can do, nothing but a few stitches and yet and yet...



As the needle goes
through the field of mokuran
birds songs
traffic sounds
even the distant train
even
your sweet face clouded with suffering

all of them
all are sewn
into mokuren

true color

Great! Three Colours: Red, White and Blue ... remember those movies? I think White is the truest. Gassho, with thanks for these useless and precious teachings.

as the needle goes

through piercing red

it

brings

forth

bird sounds

and

deeper
rain
