Poetry from within

"The no mind not thinks, no thoughts about no things" - The Buddha

Mind not the thoughts I think

Nor the things my mind has thought

Down deep inside there is a link

Whence such words are brought

Lord Buddha in His wisdom sound

Spake acts of peace come from within

In words both loving and profound

Lest not to seek without, on whim

No not believe, though thou hast heard

No not believe, because of source

Believest thou, in observation pared

Believe in reasoned argument of course

Conducive to good teaching brings

Therein sweet benefits for all

No more thoughts, about no things

Known truth doth hold our minds enthral

Richard Gildea
