What a showy little thingie!

"God wants nothing from you but the
gift of a peaceful heart."
"If we could see the miracle of a single flower
clearly, our whole life would change."
"The pail, by the wall,
would be half full of water and stars."

"Simply trust: Do not the
petals flutter down,
Just like this?"
"We are a landscape of all we have seen."

"The intrusions of the "mundane"
become agents of the sublime."
If I keep a garden bough in my heart,
the singing bird will come."
