A gatha on mind.

At Zen Forum International, someone posted the following verse:

Practise is observing your mind again and again,
not interpreting phenomenal appearances,
for whatever appears is mind itself.

I responded:
I see it a little differently. Here's my gatha:

In my practice, again and again I fail to find a mind to observe,
and I am frequently interpreting phenomenal appearances;
for whatever appears is the discrimination of mind,
not mind itself.
