Have no doubt of the divinity present always here. It is
of course already said.



Is not an entry,
Just me playing around
With my syllabus.


Realization has
Five syllables, while
Self is only one.

Is the aphasic
Relationship now.

Semantic means,
Seed-root beginnings,
Flowery ends.

Shower-drain sings,
Gargles soapy water;
Voices of draingels.

Invisible space
Arises not, yet
Hosts transient form.

Iris opens now;
Retinal interface is
Relaying vision.

UFOs are
Over our heads.

Errors occur when
Criteria are
Hedged or forgotten.

Many pieces make
Collection, or whole;
Assemble wisely.


As long as there remains even one dreamer,
as long as there is still just one slumbering,
Christ the Buddha is not Awake.

-white wolfe, the bodhisattva





who's winning so far?

Hi Jerry. Thanks for asking and I wish I could tell who was
ahead but this is not a boxing match. We have had some
extremely high quality Haiku poems submitted by James, David,
Sarlo, Alton, Jan, Dan, Wim, Jerry, Mark, Joyce, Mike,
Harsha, and others and they are still coming in. We have to
give 72 hours for entering and so we will stop taking
submissions on Thursday night at midnight. Winners will be
announced on Sunday after careful consideration. Naturally HS
accounting firm will count the ballots in absolute secrecy
and there is no possibility of leaking the results before
hand. Given below are just some of the submissions from HS
and NDS.

Here is an example from Alton, a rising Haiku star.

masquerading as death'
may be cream to them or us

Mike, offers a powerful view of reality

a nice place to be
probably better than death

And again Mike offers:

The great mystery of death
no more mysterious than life
oh well, who really cares

Wim on HS says

a question
i'm scratching my head
someone's armpit itches

James Traverse has offered several brilliant Haiku poems on HS. Here is an

the Unknown

the Sage
walking in the winter sun
no shadow


Dan has been prolific.

Here is one from Dan with a Neil Diamond flavor

I am the moon
you are the sun
whose is the reflection?

Then again from Dan

Ripple on my chin
lets the dew
settle in.

I like what David Hodges wrote in his upbeat moments

Sunlight on old brick wall:
I am no good
For anyone

Also from David, the Haiku master.

Rescuing me from myself
Is high on the list
Of no one in particular


My talk takes a walk
Pedestrian doggerel
Careful where you step


My dog stops to talk,
I'm lost on the sidewalk here,
But I'm not homeless

(Mark, you could improve yours a little and resubmit!)

Here is one from Jan. A long Haiku!

drip drip drip drip drip
says one tap to another
drip drip drip drip drip

talk talk talk talk talk
one human to another
talk talk talk talk talk

humans are like taps
dripping what they cannot hold
drip talk drip talk flaps

These are just some examples and does not include the variety and riches
submitted thus far.

still water runs deep
two rivers meet at its Source.
earth shudders and quakes


saxophone humming
dark glasses hiding tired eyes
scotch whiskey straight up


wind dancing with clouds
sand castles made in the sky
five homeless from storm



T. Eagleraven: Your wheel is broken if it does not go in all directions.

Wrong Distance: What? We have a wheel that goes in the other direction just
in case.

TE: No wonder the axel is broken!

WD: Perhaps then we only have one wheel that moves one way on the outer side
and one wheel that moves in the other direction on the inner side.

TE: No wonder the spokes are shattered. One way. One wheel. The problem with
stealing the perfect plan is that it lacks the vision and the visionary...

WD: Why won't this fucking thing work?

TE: It wasn't built for you!


As is all things in time... 'You' have attempted to enslave me (no fool am I
although I play the fool rather cunningly eh?) and thus, you are enslaved.
Like was Joseph and his coat.

Yin: Treat your enemies with unceasing and relentless respect, co-operation,
solutions, proactive choices and support their ideas by working them into
your own, which, in turn, creates Yang: which drives 'their' betrayal,
disloyalty, lack of support, greed, and egotism straight to hell where it

(In real time -- this netTime IS for the battles that ensue... the wise keep
it on the field... the fool takes it home... how do I know you are
listening? How do I know I am God?)


Your worst nightmare awaits in the subtle realm not in hell. Jesus is REAL.
Deal with it.

I AM the one that 'trains' your greatness by leaving your success to your
own ability. My 'brother' however, will 'give' you your success but will
take it when you make it... (Sun Tzu says let your enemy build your empire).

I AM told that I look like the devil. I mean SHIT! HEY! I needed a body to
get back 'here'... just like Joe Black. Eye for an Eye.

If two elements battle then four worlds are created based in 'both' winning
and 'both' losing. Nothing vs. Nothing.

I AM not here to destroy my brother, I am here to help it win. We 'all' have
had enough of 'this side of the story'!

I belong to nothing; not even independence. As I have said: I AM not
doing/being, good/evil, right/wrong or this/that. I AM my self regardless of
the reputation which is a manufacturing of what is and what is not. To say
to another that I carry your side is likened unto loading up your own ass or
mouth (as the case may be).

Imagine the Headlines: Jesus Christ blacklisted, tortured, and exciled from
Cranbrook yet embraced by the world.

'No charge' is a luxury 'given' to those that take a poor ecomomy to a
prosperous one. The separation of these is found in those that take much of
little and those that take little of much. If you had no hand in this but
one that destroyed the progress of theProcess, the how can you expext to be
invited to the head table of your Lord?

Where would you like to be?
Where else is there?

Zen is a state of doing and ending.
Tao is a state of mind and no state.
Mu is a state of being and beginning.


'What' is the question.
God knows what.
What do you know?
Don't know God.
Thus, don't know what.

Finally, if you choose to ignore my questions then you must excuse me if I
ignore your answers.

Into what? Out of what? I do not know.

-- T. Eagleraven

PS: Where 'one' is found so too the other. We identify the first then seek
the last. You look for two thus the last is the first you will find and then
you will search unceasingly for that which is before you.
