The Zen of Water

A friend of mine wrote this poem and won First Prize in the National Poetry Contest in Writer’s Journal. I liked it so much I asked if I could use it on the blog 🙂.

The Zen of Water

Water does not resist,
Thus it is never harmed.
Its power is enormous
Because it is true to its nature.
Endlessly changing,
It always returns to itself.
It finds its essence
By forever letting go.
Lacking desires,
It is constantly enriched.
Knowing neither sorrow nor joy,
Its ecstasy is eternal.
Because it does not cling to itself,
It permeates all living things.
When all things die,
Water remains.
It teaches us fulfillment
By letting go of ego.

Within each person shines an inner light that illuminates our path and is the source of hope. Illness, trauma, suffering and grief can diminish the light and shroud hope. I am a catalyst for hope and change, offering a way to rekindle this inner light.
