Haikus While Walking in the Rain
By Adam J. Pearson
Walking in the rain;
Droplets tapping on a face,
True nature laid bare:
Empty, clear, aware–
Never were we wet or dry,
Nor did we ever walk.
Beyond One and two,
Body, mind, and awareness
Belong to no one.
Laughing and laughing,
Clear tears pouring out like rain;
How was it missed so long?
