William Stafford -

I raise my hand; I take a book from the other side of the desk; I hear the boys playing ball outside my window; I see the clouds blown away by the neighboring woods - in all these I am practicing Zen, I am living Zen.  No wordy discussion is necessary, nor any explanation.

I embrace emerging experience.  I participate in discovery.  I am a butterfly.  I am not a butterfly collector.

Yes, may it be.  "I am a butterfly.  I am not a butterfly collector."
