Thich Nhat Hanh is a real poet. —Robert Lowell
In this collection of more than 100 poems composed over the last forty years, Thich Nhat Hanh’s clarity shines forth, transforming the pain and difficulty of war and exile into a celebration of awareness and the human spirit.
"How ridiculous to cling to prison-like citiesand remain there.
How laughable to fight and quarrel
with your wives and relatives.
Who do but visit.
How senseless to cherish sweet and tender words
Which are but empty echoes in a dream.
How silly to disregard one’s life by fighting foes
Who are but frail flowers.”— Milarepa
