All In [poem]

Comment read somewhere,  “There is no room for passion in Buddhism.”

making food,


wiping a tear,

leaving home,

not leaving home,

hearing a song,

a bow,

running or even walking a marathon,

writing a page,

a kiss,

a decision

spending it all

poker – all in

everything on the table

going all out

Buddha-sitting under that tree

Bodhidharma- years in a cave – legend has it he cut his eyelids off to continue

Dogen up and left for China to learn

What’s risk?

I don’t know

That’s all in.
