The Good News

Towards A Creative 2012: Part 3.

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.

A poem to take into each new moment of the new year, by my favourite zen master, Thich Nhat Hanh.
With thanks to the Heart of London Sangha who introduced me to it.


The good news, for me, is that you are here.
Thank you for sharing another year with the Go Creative! Blog.
I wish you a joyful 2012, full of creative courage and kindness.
