Three’s Philosophy


trinity
in the trees
what was, is, will be

Up and Across

each trunk and branch
points the way
no wrong turns
only new paths

The Enoughness of Nothing

in nothing
everything
rejoiced

Wise Waters

water knows
pulls and turns
are the way of life

Overheard

the flowers whispered
life needn’t be solved
it just  –  must  –  be lived

Teaching Tree

Reshaped by time and weather
my mentor on the mountain
asks me to look deeper and see through.

Fallen

There is no failure in falling.
While the descent may be hard
repose eventually softens all difficulty.
This is the grace of transformation.

Nature’s Classroom

Fall illustrates
with astounding beauty and inevitable departures
the lesson of impermanence.

Current


Rocks and trees know not to struggle
but to simply stay until the appointed time comes to go.
Change is forever pulling or pushing.
Do not begrudge the current its way.

Magic Carpet


There is still time.
Come sit on the soft lush green.
Let the world embrace you.
Each blade of grass grows just for you.

Panta rhei


The flower has turned to pod
the warmth of the sun belies the bite in the breeze
everything flows.

Harvest


As the workers toil in the carpet of sage
they hum and buzz their dictum
“from each according to their abilities, to each according to their needs”

The View from Heaven


Nature will keep the pond’s promise that the world will green itself in Spring.
Things may appear upside-down, but everything is as it should be.
