Plain-Clothes Santa

A   L   O   H   A  !

" When we are humble

 everyone is a potential best friend 

and our generosity naturally grows.

 We want to do things, to help out. 

A wonderful Zen tradition 

is called "inji-gyo,"

 or secret good deeds. . .

- Secret good deeds.
 They are so much fun. 
In their doing 
you can't help but 
smile. "

Geri Larkin 
 "Tap Dancing in Zen"

As usual,
plain-clothes Santa
gave gift baskets
to indigents
on the Honolulu
and to the Mission.

Plain-clothes Santa
is a nice Jewish boy,
just like Jesus.

" Summer set
 to earth's bosom

 And left the flushed
in a poppy 
there. " 

 Francis Thompson 
 "The Poppy," 1891
