Bearing Any Grudges

As
I stare
At this barren
Winter tree
That has shed
Its leaves
Outside
My window,

I actually see
A Buddha
Inanimate,
In touch with
Its true nature.

Serenely detached
And willing
To accept
The wheel
Of creation
And dissolution,
Without bearing
Any grudges.

Serenely detached And willing To accept The wheel Of creation... a great meditation led by the tree without leaves to Buddha...... and the silence, stillness.. thank u. tony
A deeply spiritual meditative piece. Govind, thank you so much for temporarily putting me into such a wonderful state.
Marvelous poem.
This is a beautiful poem, quite soothing to read. I spend much of my time staring at trees, barren, covered, and icy. The idea of the tree being serenely detached like a Buddha when it is dormant intrigues the mind. Thanks for sharing.
Very spiritual and inspirational to meet the will of God through nature, sublime diction, touching my mind gently with the reality of God in our lives.10+++ Thank you for sharing it. RoseAnn
