When a monk dies

When a monk dies

What does he leave behind?

Only love

Only teachings

Only a way out

Of this world of illusions


When a monk dies

How does that make one feel?




Reminding us that

It’s time to live the teachings

It’s time to grow up


Dedicated to Thich Nhat Hanh (1926-2022)
