“Better than a thousand hollow words is one word that brings peace.” – Gautama Buddha,The Dhammapada
forces of nature.
they are destruction.
they are nourishment.
they are flesh.
they are water.
they are flowers
they burn. they cleanse
they erase. they etch.
they can either
May the words we speak each day be nourishment for our souls and for those who listen.
