A Flower Does Not Talk

Silently a flower blooms,
In silence it falls away;
Yet here now, at this moment, at this place,
the whole of the flower, the whole of
the world is blooming.
This is the talk of the flower, the truth
of the blossom:
The glory of eternal life is fully shining here.

— Zenkei Shibayama
"This is the talk
of the flower,
the truth
of the blossom :
The glory of eternal life
is fully shining here"
