A Flower Blooms then Rests in the Buddha

Can I give a flower to a Buddhist?

To show the impermanence of beauty;

That all things change,

All follow the same path.

* * * *

From first bloom,

To last dying petal.

* * * *

I am like that flower.

I open to You.

Feel Your warmth and take nourishment by day,

Find refuge in Your cool, peace full sleep by night.

* * * *

I need nothing,

 . . . . except Your Smile of Recognition.

I want nothing

. . . . except Your Tears of Forgiveness.

I love nothing,

. . . . except Your Service all of my Life.
