TEACHER

My teaching is a drawing
made of water, faint
when it leaves the pen
it will be eaten
by the sky, it
may fall on the pond
amid other drops of rain.
If you cup your hands
and drink it in
it will someday be
sprinkled on the earth
where it will feed a plant
that may nourish a dog,
but only the dog’s
Buddha nature
will know of this.
