Default Free after Thich Nhat Hanh: "The Dandelion Has Your Smile"



"If you have lost your smile

and yet are still capable of seeing

that a dandelion is keeping it for you...

it's not all that bad"


"The dandelion is one member

of your community of friends.

It is there, quite faithful,

keeping your smile for you"

Thank you, The Barbarian and banksy. Thich Nhat Hanh is a buddist master. M L King wanted him to have the Nobel Piece Price - he would've deserved it more than some others, Sickinger and Amoeba for instance

The "prose verse" is really intended for those who have lost their smiles in life. What is lost must have been there - sometime. Comforting thought that flowers can keep them for you

Torgny

PS Thic Nhat Hanh would perhaps have been more well known if his name wasn't that hard to spell - an irony of life. Some facts that seem accurate:

Suppose we're all in it together
