As the sun rises, and the bird calls. the ancient buddha. Sensing the smell of the fresh rain on the grass, the ancient buddha. As the hawk swoops down on her prey, the ancient buddha. You greet your lover in the morning, the ancient buddha. Eggs in the skillet, juice on the table, the ancient buddha What is this seamlessness? What if life was lived? without division? The ancient buddha. Once Jesus was walking with his disciples and he said, Look at the birds of the air.... Look at the flowers... This is it! You reading these words. The kingdom of heaven. The ancient buddha.
