If you are a Poet

January 15, 2016


‘If you are a poet,’

you will see that there is a cloud in this sheet of paper.

Without a cloud, there will be no rain; without rain, the trees cannot grow;

and without trees, we cannot make paper.’

– Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh,


“Without Now

There would be no later

Without Now

There would be no before

Without Now

Before and later could not be joined

In holy marriage.


is the new year!

Now is the past year!



Lets Celebrate it
