Buddha's Birthday Poem

buddha poem

Written for Buddha's Birthday Ceremony at the Providence Zen Center 2018

Another Buddha's Birthday Poem? What a mistake!
2643 years of mistakes
Buddha's life, your life, my life. What a mistake!
Today's ceremony is a mistake celebrating a mistake
Open your mouth is already a mistake
Don't make a mistake is a mistake
Use this mistake to make it correct is a mistake
Who made all of these mistakes?
Hit the floor, the sky is blue, how can I help you?
This whole universe is swallowed by mind's mistake
What can you do?
Happy Birthday Buddha
