Zen Cooking

Out of nothing
We made a meal,
No gongs,
No clappers,
Hardly any zafus,
Yet,
In an empty zendo
With our heart-minds
We cooked
A scrumptuous meal.
At that time
We didn’t know
We were cooking,
Didn’t know
We were standing
In Dogen’s kitchen.
Just did it,
Jumping in where needed,
A lotus blossoming
In the emptiness.
