Vernal Equinox 2016

To S.G.

The babbling creek is calling out
your name in the park

The apple blossoms are blooming
in full

So white they purify
my missing you

You’re not here and I celebrate
Spring equinox

As quietly as the mind
I try to achieve

I listen to the universe
and contemplate

*All in one
and one in all*

Happy first day of Spring!

*from The Miracle of Mindfulness by Thích Nhất Hạnh
