In brush strokes
Spring flowers white, yellow
Spring grows warm
Magnolia trees bloom
Not for long
“We may ask, ‘What is wisdom?’ It is our life itself.
We not only have that wisdom, we are constantly using it.
When we are cold, we put on more clothing.
When hungry, we eat. When sad, we cry.
Being happy, we laugh. That’s wisdom.
The seasons change, the stars shine in the sky, it’s all wisdom.
Regardless of whether we realize it or not,
we are always in the middle of the Way.
We are nothing but the Way itself.”
~ Taizan Maezumi
