Gratitude Stone #6

Appreciation for the quiet that follows an evening of illness.
No pressure in the temples; thank you.
No heaving in the gut; thank you.
And the chimes clear the night air.

Gratitude stone #5

remembering Rohatsu/buddha's awakening/Morning Star;
when filing, answering the phone, driving the car, walking Lucy,
all is practice and all is opportunity for awakening
again and again
over and over.

Gratitude Stone#4

a most elegant setting sun
amidst raging winds
bringing winter weather.

#2 A Zinc Tongue

the deep red cellophane entices opening
the label claims "lozenge may shorten duration of cold".
the lozenge dissolves/the tongue becomes dry and turns into a flapping piece of metal where once taste buds lived.

Stones of Gratitude

Oh, sweet rejection, how you encourage me to keep moving forward.
