The space heaters
Tried all night
To warm the zendo

Yet, the morning coolness
Greeted every preparation
As the Dharma

The candle was lit
By the wonder of arrival
Through the snow

Cushions set with
Deep blue liturgy books
Welcomed cat hair and butts

How brave to burn
Each breath
Sitting still

Supported by another
All beings were saved
By all beings
