Rouge Water Vessel 

 

 
 
Everyday
 
Deep in the darkness of the abyss
 
 
 
Through the dark blue cave
 
By the time you notice the colorless Self
 
 
 
Eventually you will arrive at
 
The edge of reality
 
 
The Self colors the surface of imaginary water
 
 
 
Dimly lit
 
 
 
Rouge remains

Moist Vermillion Sound 
 

 

As I am lured by a bright light

There are times when 

I taste the lonliness as I wear a mask everyday

 

I softly step into the Time of Stillness

Outside the frame of reality

Dark, deep abyss becomes moist and rust brown

 

From the night mist

 

It rots into the ripples upon the surface of imaginary water

 

 

While only the sound remains

White Rust 

 

 

There are days when I get weary

 

Of pretending to be beautiful

 

 

Suddenly I notice

 

 

The dry air

 

 

Touching

 

 

Eventually, one will wander around

 

As one emerges out of the frame of reality

 

 

White Realm of No Mind

 

To the surface of imaginary water

 

 

As it slightly decays

 

 

With ripples remaining

Three Inch Fingerprint 

 

 

 

That which accumulates daily

Those are my fingerprints

That reveal my 3-inch immaturity

 

 

  

 

Everyday is like fingerprints

 

Covered in air

 

 

Where are you going

 

When you're only 3 inches tall

 

 

Eventually, the fingerprints stop

 

 

And emerges outside of the ripples

 

 

 

 

On the surface of imaginary water

Thread of Water Mirror

 

 

 
The Mundane repeats itself over and over again
 
Suddenly, I noticed peeking outside of
 
The frame of reality
 
 
 
At night, the surface of water expands
 
My Self emerges from the water from the ripples
 
And liberates various ornaments
 
Inside of a seasoned mirror
 
 
 
An important place exists where
 
One can become nothing again
 
My bliss is when I return to No Mind
 
Then, the Self is reflected
 
 
 
At midnight, upon the Water Mirror

Remains of Dew

 

 

As daily life dyes 

 

I look back your colorless self

 

 

I keep searching for the meaning of life

 

When every color sleeps

 

There comes into my sight eventually

 

Peeking out of my own color

 

On the surface of imaginary water

 

In the quiet of the mist

 

Revising my own color

 

The cloudless true color

 

 

And it will repeat

 

 

Slightly colored

 

 

Leaving ripples behind
