Parchment red and orange,
Silently, the woods question:
Sound… a squirrel jumps.


Today I went to the Chuang Yen Buddhist monastery in Carmel, New York. The drive was beautiful, with puffs of foliage red, orange, yellow, and green. The air smelled of of dirt and wood, so fresh and quiet, leaving me naturally in a meditative state, only occasionally awakened by the jumping squirrel.
