Words, may they be as beautiful as pink tulips

Words can travel thousands of miles.  

May my words create mutual understanding and love. 

May they be as beautiful as gems, 

as lovely as flowers……………….Thich Nhat Hanh 

I am reading a good book by Thich Nhat Hahn. In it he offered this lovely poem, or rather mediation prayer, as a reminder that our words have impact. If you are angry or irritated the other person will receive your negativity, he suggests we be mindful of our words and the impact they have.

So I offer you a lovely flower; may your day be filled with flowers and gems.
