Definitions of tangible on the Web:



I sway to the left
then back to the right
settle in between and become one piece

That really speaks to the experience of becoming concentrated during Zazen/meditation.

Thanks for this.

Jordan,
For me its more like this

bob and weave to my left
parry and step to right
Bam, right down the middle

When I awake, I realize I am in different place than I had thought.

Yamakoa,
Yes, right between the running lights.

Thank you for your comments

Great poem!
Although when you sit during Sea State 5 you will be doing much more swaying back forward and left and right!

Chaplain,

Thank you.

I think sea state 5 is just good sleeping conditions.

Gassho,
