only this moment
without beginning or end
within the circle

This senryū is my response to
Carpe Diem #1802 New Beginnings … without beginning,
with regard to death (and life).

On his deathbed, Zen Monk Shinsui (1720-1769), when asked to write a death poem,
is said to have drawn this circle with an ink brush.
