Seeking true north (with a nod to Ryokan)

By Sam Fischer (stanzas 1, 3, 5) and Bill Waters (stanzas 2, 4, 6)

my feet go on walking
my mind goes on wandering
and my feet go on walking

the clouds above
the grass below

a ladybug tags along
a friend looking
for a ride

last night’s inn
so far behind . . .
ahead an upland cabin

waning day, settled
smile on my face

beaming down on me
a Buddha moon . . .
dreaming with eyes open
