Paper in Your Pocket

The insight scribbled hastily
On a scrap of paper in your pocket:
How will it reach others?

Like a single pebble cast into still waters,
Its ripples travel far.

Yet if shared in haste
It becomes just another rock
Lost in the cairn.

Lower the barrier
Smooth the way
Make space for the unspoken.

In the beginner’s mind
Scattered seeds become flowers
Frustration melts like morning frost

Immediate praise and blame
Are dancing shadows.
The one who shares, the one who hears-
Not two.

Like the moon in the lake
Insight reflects insight.
The interface is empty, yet fulfilled.

Let your insight fall like rain
Seep through cracks to sow its seed.
A quiet truth echoes loudest.
