Two Haïkus

pour haïku autelBouddha small

Haïku - the altar

Laid on the altar
A few chocolate cherries
Impassive Buddha

Haïku - de La Lune dans la Tasse

      very lazily
in your empty little house
  reading Ryôkan

zazen before dawn
the tawny owl tells the monks
        she’s going to bed

     on the quiet temple
Orion leans
    huge owls and little dukes  !

      the shadow of the mountains
already fills the valley
       at winter solstice

Luc Bordes – 2008
