[OceanofDharma] Quotes of the Week: Mosquitoes Just So

Ocean of Dharma Quotes of the Week

August  21, 2009

[Ed. Note: It's summer, so Ocean of Dharma is having a picnic this month. What's a picnic without mosquitoes?]


The trees
Just so
Baby ducks
Learn to float
Just so
Mosquitoes' beaks
Just so....
Nothing to worry
Everything is
Just so
Doesn't quite hurt
But sometimes
Painfully ticklish

From "1018 Spruce Street (and K.A.)" in TIMELY RAIN: Selected Poetry of Chogyam Trungpa, edited by David I Rome, page 118.
