Poetry

where mystery, emptiness, and form are expressed with twilight language in verse

Meditation in solitary places.

Meditation in solitary places make the yogi happy.
Prayers and offerings make the protectors happy.
Cash up front makes most gurus happy.
Wandering the expanse without care is my happiness.

Right motivation and pure heart makes the Buddhas happy.
Fearless Conduct makes the siddha happy.
Approving glances and compliments make most disciples happy.
Wandering the expanse without care is my happiness.

The expanse of teachings makes the student happy..
The extent of space makes the Garuda happy.
The stretch of mind’s  tangled machinations keeps most people happy.
Wandering the expanse without care is my happiness.

The beauties of puja make the devotee happy.
Blazing and dripping in secret channels makes the yogi happy.
A little wet friction makes most men happy.
Wandering the expanse without care is my happiness.

Pure dharma lineage makes the practitioner happy.
The heritage of secret conduct makes the yogin happy.
Eagerly waiting inheritance makes most people happy.
Wandering the expanse without care is my happiness.

Accumulating mantra makes the mantrica happy.
Working the koan makes the zen person happy.
Tallying money makes the sangha treasurer happy.
Wandering the expanse without care is my happiness.

Hearing praise of the guru makes the disciple happy. - t.k.

t.k., tsogyelgar, traktung khepa
Listening to the sound of emptiness makes the yogin happy.
Celebrity gossip makes TV watchers happy.
Wandering without care in the vast expanse is my happiness.

With the empty sky as my home,
And a happy mind as my dogma,
Like a lion who roams free
I wander the vast expanse.
