      There is a stillness
      simpler than silence
      a peace deeper than calm.
      There is a shimmering
      in the dark soil,
      shades of trees,
      in old moss, and the twisted
      forms of branches,
      that hold us, carry us
      and nurture us.
      In the flash of the eye,
      laughter, or a tear.
      No effort needed, no self to seek,
      just grace remains.
      ~Svein Myreng (Plum Poems)

      The world has billions of people
      and no two faces alike
      I wonder about the reason
      behind such variation
      and all with similar views
      debating who is right and wrong
      just correct yourself
      and stop maligning others
      ~ Shih-te [Pickup]
      via Zen Poems, Haiku & Writings

      Our job is to love others without stopping
      to inquire whether or not they are worthy.
      That is not our business and,
      in fact, it is nobody's business.
      What we are asked to do is to love,
      and this love itself will render both ourselves
      and our neighbors worthy, if anything can.

      "The more you practice zazen, the more you will be interested in your daily life.
      This is to observe your situation accurately, to clear your mind and begin from
      your original starting point."
      ~ Shunryu Suzuki, Not Always So

      Yes, I’m truly a dunce
      Living among trees and plants.
      Please don’t question me about illusion and enlightenment
      This old fellow just likes to smile to himself.
      I wade across streams with bony legs,
      And carry a bag about in fine spring weather.
      That’s my life,
      And the world owes me nothing.
      ~ Ryokan
      via Zen Poems, Haiku & Writings

      One day, music will take its rightful place
      as the true religion of Mankind.
      ~ Inayat Khan
