Forest Haiku II

On a recent visit to Wat Pa Nanachat, Thailand...

The forest is full
Of chanting voices
And yet still...

He pours water
Upon a tree
Forest sings back

Golden Buddha
Stares impassively
Quieting this mind

Light dances
On dark foliage
Catching the eye

Falling leaves
Are messengers
From the Buddha

Cannot catch leaves
With this camera
Moment is lost

Squirrels leap
Through the forest
Of this mind
