Wordless Wednesday

Well, not my words anyway. But good words

The Good News
—Thich Nhat Hanh

They don’t publish

the good news. 

The good news is published 

by us. 

We have a special edition every moment, 

and we need you to read it. 

The good news is that you are alive, 

and the linden tree is still there, 

standing firm in the harsh Winter. 

The good news is that you have wonderful eyes 

to touch the blue sky. 

The good news is that your child is there before you, 

and your arms are available: 

hugging is possible. 

They only print what is wrong. 

Look at each of our special editions. 

We always offer the things that are not wrong. 

We want you to benefit from them 

and help protect them. 

The dandelion is there by the sidewalk, 

smiling its wondrous smile, 

singing the song of eternity. 

Listen! You have ears that can hear it. 

Bow your head. 

Listen to it. 

Leave behind the world of sorrow 

and preoccupation 

and get free. 

The latest good news 

is that you can do it.
