From a Conversation-Hour Discussion About Intolerance with Adult English Students

By Nahshon Cook

Pak Kret, Nonthanburi, Thailand

Then he explained
how the Buddha

instructed us
to reflect on the body

our skin
our hands and feet

our body hair
our nails and teeth

our noses
our eyes

our minds
our hearts

so that we can see
ourselves clearly

in every person
no matter where



A note from Nahshon:

This poem is an offering of
gratitude for the healing power of love
and I hope (with my whole heart)
that you enjoy it

Peace and a smile, beautiful people,
Nahshon Cook
