Buddha Poem




You taught me to be here with my full attention,

To cherish each moment as precious:

More sacred than memory

Or the dreams that tomorrow may bring.



Is the milk that sustains us

And in it is a beauty and wonder

That I used to search for,

Imagining it was far yonder.



Is a flower in crescendo,

Vibrant with the full colour

Of all its yesterdays.


Here and now, I am the sum total of all my days.

You have taught me the mindfulness of being

And I honour this, with gratitude and stillness:

The song of you, present in the core of me.
