Cry

After cry

After cry of joy-

Not minding

The hair

Turning white.


Zen Poem by Dogen


==================================

Dogen is the founder of the Soto Lineage of Zen Buddhist practice.
And this is his little nutshell offering of aging WITH meditation.
In my view Soto is 'better' than Rinzai, and therefore, though this
is clearly not Haiku, since I am grateful to him for his introduction
of a system of approach to meditation that is alive and breathes easily
and is immediately accessable to anyone anywhere at any time, I'm posting
his scant, humble little offering here. Please don't spank me too hard.
I'll try not to do it again.
