How we should live.
Perfect wisdom 😀
A wonderful view our friend has.
Love the double meaning of “back” in the title. I’d never take affront at that kind of wordplay.
Love this! I might just copy this poem into my notebook. Words to live by!
I notice you have shifted from one long line to two lines. What is your thinking behind that?
Actually it is WordPress’s thinking. If you view the posts on my blog rather than in the reader you will see that I almost always write in three lines – the poetic triplet or tercet. Thanks for asking.
Love the words! Love the view!
Peaceful photo 🙂
Very good 🙂
Very nice!! 🙂
on a walk yesterday morning, I came upon the back of a Buddha statue that looked nearly identical to this, except it was set in a bamboo forest, on a remote island in the middle of the Pacific…time and space
I love the way that the Buddha has the view in this scene.
I thought he’d never gone away.
