Lyrics

Black bull, gray jay, bleached bones, guard the way. Climb the mountain, touch the sun, listen to the ants on the drum.

Fasting days, fasting hours. Exhale prayer, inhale power. Climb the mountain, touch the sun, listen to the ants on the drum.

Thistle pine, plantain, yarrow. Pleasure, pain, wisdom, sorrow. Climb the mountain, touch the sun, listen to the ants on the drum.

Cows in heaven, pigs in hell. Ravens crying, never tell. Climb the mountain, touch the sun, listen to the ants on the drum.

Yahweh, vishnu, seti, shiva. Angel, fairy, cherub, diva. Climb the mountain, touch the sun, listen to the ants on the drum.

Sit in zazen, read the koran. Breathe in brahmin, feel the shamin. Climb the mountain, touch the sun, listen to the ants on the drum.

 

Monthly Haiku

Savor this day like
a clam on the soft belly
of a sea otter.
