IGWRT's - A Word with Laurie "Zen"


Zen

Crisp
morning air,

cascading light,
a sole song bird...


Can one
breath in Zen?


Yes, one can.
It's called coffee.

Coffee can be a good alternative ;-)

Fair trade coffee would be a better alternative. :)

Can one breathe in zen?
I love that question, and the delicate touch you have used with every word in this poem. The picture is just stunning.

LOL.... I ink we can breathe in Zen, yes. Beautiful.
As for coffee, I had to quit drinking it, I was drinking a 12 cup pot a day and then making more. So addicted, had to stop. So, went back to tea. But the old craving is creeping back again. Had a couple of Tim Horton's drive through coffee's this past week, boy are they good!~!
That old devil called love again ;)

Hah! Just imagine how one sees the goodness in life in a simple cup of coffee. Not many are blessed with this special talent and ability. No small wonder you're a great artist and photographer. Great, Marge!

"Coffee"!! Fabulous, Margaret, and you're so right. I love coffee but it has begun to upset my stomach so I'm having to get my caffeine from tea and diet sodas, not the same thing at all. I love the aroma of coffee.
You sure nailed this one.

I love it! I am about to do that very thing and am wildly excited as I have coffee splash with a new flavor - caramel macchiato.. Whu-hoo! The photo you took with your iphone is astounding. Looking at it is Instant Zen!

Kim Nelson said...

LOL! Until that last line I thought this was going to be delightfully esoteric. Then you cracked me up!

Susie Clevenger said...

Beautiful picture! What a peaceful poem...oh and the delightful zen of coffee...I am right there with you. :)

These two images connected--the coffee and the being in the Light of your pic--speaks my mind!
