Now – Haiku#4

My teacher of the Zen.nl Sangha invited us to write haiku. I already have written down a lot, so how can I not respond to the challenge?

He’s given us one example:

The eternal now
Springboard for the past
Dives into the future *)

My response is:

The timeless now
Still point between then and then
Motionless dynamics **)

Can both be true?


The original haiku in Dutch:

*) Het eeuwige nu
Springplank van het verleden
Duikt de toekomst in
Bron: zen.nl, Rients Ritskes

**) Het tijdloze nu
Stil punt tussen toen en dan
Roerloos dynamisch
