A Quotable Quote


“All that we are is the result of what we have thought; it is made up of thoughts; if a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him like a shadow that never leaves him.”   – Buddha

I thought we’d seen the last of mass shootings

at schools, concerts, churches, and theaters

but I guess my thoughts

were not strong enough

perhaps not pure enough

What will it take?

I keep thinking and hoping

I keep speaking with passion

I keep acting to be the example

But what will it take?

I wish happiness will follow.

I wish truth will follow.

I wish we will all get together

to find a solution.

 

 

A Found Poem –


The following poem is composed of my lines and lines from other poems I found on WordPress. I have included the attributions at the end.

Soft promises made

By hidden thoughts

Only I could see

 

I know you love the ocean

And the magic of its waves

You see at the distance  

a rowboat sway in peace

And nature whispers in the dark –

How much the earth loves you back

 

A super moon appears

To light the way

And if

If you want to keep a secret

And keep it well

Then I will tell

The world

Miracles are real.
