one word sutra: palm

this hand:
hold your dreams

pass them along

in the gathering breeze

cherish those

in dustbins

gather them

in the waiting hearts

Beautiful, prijatelj. This form seems to agree with you.

Truly beautiful, Brother Murat. So the Sutra parallels the teachings of all the great faiths. And the shape of the palm is roughly a parallelogram.

And in our hands, which are the image of God's hand, we must hold our dreams and pass them along in the gathering breeze. We also stretch out our hands to cherish those in the dustbins, and of course, to do this we must gather them into our hearts, which should be open and waiting to love our fellow humans.

This one brought tears to my eyes. You are on a roll today. More than cotton candy again, a sweet healthful dish of lovely fruit and cream for dessert. (Although it should be the basis of every meal, wouldn't you say?)

Anno: Love that word; I'm sure it sounds as beautiful as it looks.

Teresa: I was happy with this tiny piece, happy how it fell out, but I think the real beauty is, once again, in your lovely exegesis.

I think this one is a diamond. It really didn't need any exegesis, but I noticed my palm is almost a parallelogram, so I thought I would point that out. Other thoughts came from other discussions.
