Kiss The Earth - A Poem by Thich Naht Hahn


Kiss The Earth

Walk and touch peace every moment.

Walk and touch happiness every moment.

Each step brings a fresh breeze.

Each step makes a flower bloom.

Kiss the Earth with your feet.

Bring the Earth your love and happiness.

The Earth will be safe

When we feel safe in ourselves.

Thich Naht Hahn

From " Call Me By My True Names"
