First snow, then silence.

This thousand dollar screen dies [restrict]

So beautifully.

—————————–

With searching comes loss

And the presence of absence:

‘My Novel’ not found.

—————————–

The Tao that is seen

Is not the true Tao-until

You bring fresh toner.

—————————–

Stay the patient course.

Of little worth is your ire.

The network is down.

—————————–

A crash reduces

Your expensive computer

To a simple stone.

—————————-

Three things are certain:

Death, taxes and lost data.

Guess which has occurred.

—————————-

You step in the stream,

But the water has moved on.

This page is not here.

—————————-

Out of memory.

We wish to hold the whole sky,

But we never will.

—————————-

Having been erased,

The document you’re seeking

Must now be retyped.

*Editors Note

Zen is not easy. It takes effort to attain nothingness.

……. And then what do you have? [restrict]
