Benji Poem for Enzan Chotoku Gary Artim

Keyboard clicks
Basketballs bounce
A full court press

Our Shuso Enzan Chotoku Round Mountain,
   Clear Genuine

Showers us with his kind heart and sincere

At Old Plum Mountain we once again gather 
Body to body
Heart to heart

The mourning doves, east and west call to us 
Wake up
Take a breath
Settle in
Can you hear it?

Medicine and disease subdue each other:
The whole world is medicine; What is your self?

Circling, Circling
Where do you land?

Now let us hear the Shuso

                            —Mitsuko Myojun Nancy Suib
