Poetry: Buddha Mind by Mark Tulin

The mind like water

Fluid, flowing

Peaceful, dynamic

Strong yet still

An ocean of thoughts

Connecting without gripping

Blending and mixing

Receiving without judging

Understanding without knowing

Accepting and doubting

Releasing the craving

Letting go of the attaching

The mind like water evaporates into the atmosphere.



Freelance writer, poet, yogi and photographer from Santa Barbara, California. I write and take pictures about a variety of topics, from my early childhood in Philadelphia, to my years as a family therapist, and finally to my soul-searching years in California. The things that move me may have a humorous or serious content or both. Either way, I hope my poetry, pictures and stories resonate with you.
