The Mind is Like a Fox Terrier

Cowboy with Pillows

“I have nothing to do with this talking. It is just like the sparrows chirping.”  Shri Nisargadatta Maharaj, translated by Prasanna

Below is a haiku inspired by the the quote above and by this photo of Cowboy, our Fox Terrier. Please share a haiku that comes to you as you view the photo or reflect on the passage about the nature of the mind and the chatter it generates. (A traditional haiku is 3 lines: 5 syllables, 7 syllables and 5 syllables.)

    In my mind thoughts bounce
