Poems for Summer: A Flower is Always Happy

June 18, 2013

Book coverA flower is always happy because it is beautiful.
Bees sing their song of loneliness and weep.
A waterfall is busy hurrying to the ocean.
A poet is blown by the wind.

A friend without inside or outside
And a rock that is not happy or sad
Are watching the winter crescent moon
Suffering from the bitter wind.

From Timely Rain: Selected Poetry of Chogyam Trungpa, page 56.
