Fallen leaves - Zen


This morning this express train from Turku to Helsinki is ten minutes late, as usual.
During the last winter due to lot of snow. Now lot of fallen leaves on the rail making those slippery.
Checked my Email - waiting a message; none yet.
Surfing and found following:

ten minutes late --
a morning-train's zen
for the fallen leaves

Nice to see you there,Tikkis...and love the haiku,

i was in a flight recently -- possibly zen too (it was too cloudly), yet we reached dot on time...there's something about this universe, which takes care of itself, i think...when left to its own,

sorry for a long commentary, Tikkis...just flowed from my pen :)

wishes,
devika

quite iteresting; i liked this " the “spiritual” isn’t something available only to specialists, but something more like water—ubiquitous. "

much love

haversacks
sent packing
now they walk
the white-line home

empty handed
i arrived
empty handed
i return

'twas an eye-opener
meeting up with
this absolutely
delightful new world
