RIP Lou Hartman

Lou Hartman died today at 3:45pm.  He was 96 years old.

(These are Lou’s poems from Inquiring Mind, Fall 2008 edition)

First Sesshin with Suzuki Roshi
What a laugh!
The actor serving tea in the zendo
Thinks he’s me!

Enlightenment
Enlightenment is like
The square root of minus one:
Imaginary but useful
In solving certain personal equations
