WISDOM FROM LIFE REVISED

No one can better bask in summer’s balm than those who have endured winter’s bite. Similarly, it is those who have suffered through life’s darkest hours who are able to truly savor the bright dawn of happiness. The person who has transformed the worst of fate into the best of fortune is life’s champion.

 — from Buddhism Day by Day by Daisaku Ikeda

HOME

More ephemeral than a dream,
a touchstone of the heart,
an invisible locus
in the recess of memory
where one returns
for connection,
a creation of one’s own,
a heaven or hell.

COMING SOON
