Zen Poetry

Patience with Grace

There are far worse things than waiting

I wish I had waited for you
with more patience and grace

To breathe deeply with eyes closed
like the yogi who sits with legs crossed

I wish to understand the simple lesson
that waiting doesn’t mean to suffer




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.
