Zazen

In the still night by the vacant window,
Wrapped in monk’s robe
I sit in meditation,
Navel and nostrils lined up straight,
Ears paired to the slope of shoulders.
Window whitens,
The moon comes up;
Rain’s stopped,
But drops go on dripping.
Wonderful!
The mood of this moment;
Distant, vast

Ryokan (1758-1831)
