Like the little stream by Taigu Ryokan

Like the little stream
Making its way
Through the mossy crevices
I, too, quietly
Turn clear and transparent.

On Non-Dependence of Mind by Dogen

Coming, going, the waterbirds
don’t leave a trace,
don’t follow a path.

Original Face by Dogen

in spring, flowers
in summer, cuckoos
in autumn, the moon
in winter, snow
vivid and cold

Midnight by Dogen

No waves,
No wind,
The empty boat
Is flooded with moonlight
