A Flower is Always Happy

BY CHOGYAM TRUNGPA

 

A flower is always happy because it is beautiful.

Bees sing their song of loneliness and weep.

A waterfall is busy hurrying to the ocean.

A poet is blown by the wind.

 

A friend without inside or outside 

And a rock that is not happy or sad

Are watching the winter crescent moon

Suffering from the bitter wind.
