Apple trees

Standard

apple trees
blossoming soon-
last snow flurries

This week has been crazy weather wise and today we have snow flurries. Odd to see buds sprouting forth and verdant fields was snow falling

Mosquito Buddha

mosquito larva
on the stagnant pool-
future Buddhas

Our mind is the stagnant pond. If we recognize the Buddha within ourselves the larva will hatch and our mind will flow in harmony.

Flower festival

Standard

chicks breaking
through the shell-
flower festival

Today is Hanamatsuri or Flower festival. It is also the time we celebrate the birth of the Buddha. Just as a chick breaks through its shell to be born we too must break through our ego to be born a compassionate being. May today be your birth too.

Shoots of green

Standard

popping up-
shoots of green
welcome the dawn

As a walked this morning I noticed little shoots starting to push up through the flower beds. Nice to see Spring arriving.
