Pilgrimage - Haiku - October 25, 2014

"Wherever this sutra circulates or wherever there are sentient beings who hold fast to the name of the Medicine Buddha [Yakushi Buddha] and respectfully make offerings to him, whether in villages, towns, kingdoms or in the wilderness, we [the Twelve Generals] will all protect them. We will release them from all suffering and calamities and see to it that all their wishes are fulfilled." (Source: Wikipedia)

in a sea of sand
silent waves and islands

healing souls
in the temple's silence
Kobo Daishi

raking the sand
in deep contemplation
ah - a sparrow lands

(c) G.s.k. '14


  1. Just think of how many grains of sand that landing sparrow disturbs! ;)

  2. Very nicely done - that middle haiku is particularly nice.


harmonious words ... like crystal clear water ... pure ectasy
