Dharma of the Day #43

Each thing that you do

And every word that you say

Become a nest for you to sleep in

And where you raise your young


The fledglings remember

The nest they came from.

They learn how to build

And,what straw to use.


Nests made of barbed wire

And hot angry coals

Singe the feathers,

So flight is much harder.


Nests lined with truth

And goodwill to all beings

Comfort the eggs

And ease the yoke of life


Do not burden others

With the weight of your folly.

It should end somewhere

maybe with you?


When a bird makes its nest

It takes great care.
