Genko Kathy Blackman, Zenni

Embodying the season,

Autumn turns to winter.

What is preparation?

Golden o-kesa

caring shoulders of grace.

What is preparation?

Human, wife, mother, teacher,

Innumerable blossoms.

What is preparation?

Acorn, oak tree in the garden,

Now a mighty dharma forest.

What is the preparation?

Genko's roar bath to bath

flowers, tea and incense.

Hai! Hai! Hai! Hai!


Our knees have grown muddy,

working in the garden,

light and shadow,

Now as Now.

100 percent natural.


Every moment...

Every where...

Namu Dai Bosa!
