Poem: Home, Only One Flower Away

A poem dedicated to all teachers and participants at the Mindfulness Retreat in San Diego, California, September 2000 mb28-HomeAmazing life of purple-blue Morning Glory its true name Vibrant sunny face beams Elegant breezy arms sway

Deeply I look at the flower Softly violet hue nods back Becoming one The flower and me at play

Whole suchness Lineage from gentle powerful teachers Interbeing with quiet nurturing friends Strength in a delicate way

Present moment, wonderful moment Coming home to timelessness No more tears In smiles of oneness I stay

When my heart wearies again From traveling on the road I will always remember Home, only one flower away
