welcome to groundlessness

the earth opens under your feet
and you recall Buddha's First Noble Truth
The truth of dukkha (suffering, anxiety, stress)
and you wonder why is Buddha smiling

you wake up this morning
after dreaming about a sleeping cat
who is dreaming that he is you
dreaming about a sleeping cat

cold north wind blowing
colorful leaves off the trees

he can't sing

he can't sing
and you can't hear
nothing to do
but go out for a beer

winds of hungry ghosts
chill nights where you run into
souls lost in the cold
