POEMS: “Follow Truth”

Follow Truth

The Buddha didn’t know that

his choice to be himself would

roll through the pages of history

like a rogue wave.  All he did

was sit beneath the bodhi tree,

intention fixed on awakening,

and when the light flowed in,

he offered it back as the fruit

of all his practice.  We each

act without knowing how the

ripples from our pond might

touch another, what the

consequences of our freedom

might be, or where the choice

to follow truth might lead.
