The song of non-expectation
Is indeed
A song of Peace.

The best prayer

There are many prayers,
But what is the best prayer?
My yesterday's forgetting,
My today's peace,
And my tomorrow's transformation. 

*

Peace is not the dream of tomorrow,
Peace is the reality of today. 

*

If you know a little about love,
Then you are ready to learn more. 
Therefore, always start with love. 

*

In my tiny joy
Is room for my titanic sorrow,
And more, much more. 

*

My life
Is the flower
Of my meditation. 

No meditation,
No flower,
No life.

Love's first blush is fanciful,
And time shows it for a fool. 
Love's morning is a lost thing,
All the while it learns to sing. 
Love's noon is a thing so bright,
If forgets the thing called night. 
Love's evening is cool,
And past all regret. 
Love's day is all this and more:
A child of hope and wonder,
Knocking at my door.

Who drinks the living sap
And translates the
Rhythm of the tree:

Cicada.

*

After the rains
The veins of cicadas 
Run with the sap of trees
Boiled over in the heat
And their 
crickle-clatter-chatter-patter
fills the air.

*

Within your breast I have heard
the metronome of My Lord so soothing;
Your smile is a beautiful song
I had too long forgotten!

*

Our suffering so often shows
The truth is no gift of mind.

*

O heart of love 

O heart of love
Teach me your song
O heart of love
My days are long
O heart of love 
Teach me your song. 

*

The flame of love
May be a tiny thing,
But it illlumines
the entire world.

Every leaf is a canticle

Every leaf is a canticle

The fire gold heart of my Lord,
The breath of creation's cry,
Spills across the sky.

The urge within so often sigh,
Now whispers loud,
"He is nigh!"

*

First day of summer, sunset storm with lightning and thunder.
