Zen Poetry

If Only I were Mindful

A tribute to the late Thich Nhat Hanh

If only I could walk with Brother Thay,
find happiness in the here and now —
realize there’s no beginning or end,
that people are all the same —
and connected in many ways




Zen is a meditative state. As a poet in Zen we all write Zen Poetry. All poets who are in love with the Craft of Poetry are welcome to contribute their poems.
