Those who call themselves Buddhists

OHNE WÖRTER (FLOWER SERMON TANKA)
I picked a flower
Twirled it between my fingers
Sat waiting, smiling
Till it divulged its secret
But it just withered and died
I read somewhere this morning, impossible to find now, that love needs no object…

Nicely expressed, Ben. One on which to meditate…
Be breathe in
We breathe out
Until we don’t
And then the Universe
