Buddha Mind of Pebble - Again…

(Five years later, Long Branch Beach, New Jersey, again,

as the poem was written…)

   

I inscribed words on a little pebble,

The pebble said, “Please don’t scribble.”

`.

I told the pebble,

“I am injecting the mind of Buddha.”

.

Little Pebble said,

“I do not want the mind of Buddha.”

.

I asked,

“What mind, then, do you want?”

.

“I have no mind.”

Little Pebble answered.

.

“Since you have no mind,

Why not having the mind of Buddha?”

.

“Buddha mind helps all sentient beings,

Turning their mind into no-mind”, I continued.

.

Silently, Little Pebble consented.

Silently, I thanked Little Pebble with a salute…
