A Poem for the Noble Eight Fold Path

Right View

Floating clouds interlace

shards of moon

how then are we

what we appear

  • Right Thought

Bubbles, rising, popping, clinging

foaming string-options of reality

on off on off

what is between

  • Right Speech

Listening there is nothing to be said

speaking there is nothing to be heard


is nothing to question

  • Right Action


  • Right Livelihood

Bringing the boat

welcoming all aboard

the journey taken it is no longer needed

  • Right Effort


  • Right Mindfulness


  • Right Concentration
