A Smile

Shakyamuni held up a lotus
so Kashyapa smiled.
Not at all.
The lotus smiled
so Kashyapa smiled.

Nowhere was Shakyamuni!

To see, a flower, a child, an animal, another human being, this world.....

This presence.....

This pure love.....

This beingness.....

This life.....

......Just touches a chord, deep within my soul,

......And makes me smile.
