Brigid Poetry Fest

February 1, 2011

In honour of the Festival of Brigid and the 6th annual Brigid Poetry Fest …  here is my offering of poetry.  From Thich Nhat Hanh’s inspiring book, “Peace is Every Step”.. he says, “I would like to share a poem with you, written by a friend who died at the age of 28, in Saigon, thirty years ago. After he died people found many beautiful poems he had written.”  This poem is to a  flower, a Dahlia.

Standing quietly by the fence,

you smile your wondrous smile.

I am speechless and my senses are filled

by the sounds of your beautiful song,

beginningless and endless.

I bow deeply to you.
